The City of Fairfield Street Department (usually referred to as Public Works) is a vital part of the Fairfield community.
The Street Superintendent oversees the maintenance, upkeep, and construction of all city streets, alleys, and improvements taking place within the rights of way within the community. Street cleanings, snow removal, and annual yard and brush pick-ups are part of the activities throughout the year.
The department responds to emergencies and citizen complaints on any issues associated with traffic, sidewalks, sewers, or streets.
It is the responsibility of the person removing the snow from driveways and other places to get it up on the parking and off of the street.
Traffic Signals & Signs
We have 13 intersections in the City that are controlled by traffic lights. The bulbs were all updated with new LEDs (Light-emitting diode) in 2008. Each intersection has it's own computer that controls that intersection.
