Peoria Public Works department was recently hit pretty hard with some changes. Layoffs were handed out, and some depts shut down.

The Street department consists of the crews that go out to the roads and fill pot holes, square patch, lay down the oil and rock, and also switch over in the winter when needed and plow the streets  and do ice control for Peoria. All crew members are First responders and CPR certified. 

The Sewer department consists of crews that go out and rip up broken concrete sections, then install new concrete in its place, rip out and replace culverts, clear clogged culverts, use a vac truck to clear out blockages in underground drainage systems, along with switching over as well in the winter to plow the roads and do ice control for Peoria. All crew members are first responders and CPR certified. 

The Forestry department consists of a crew that goes out and does tree removal work of old, decayed, dead trees in the right of way that pose a hazard to passing by vehicles or pedestrians. They uplift tree limbs over the roadways to a minimum of 16 feet, in turn keeping large trucks, emergency vehicles, garbage trucks, semis, ambulances, plow trucks, tow trucks, etc from hitting the limbs and breaking lights, mirrors, etc. They also uplift over the sidewalks to a minimum of 7 feet. They clear limbs in the right of way, away from street lights, stoplights, all roadway signs, businesses, homes, etc. They are the first ones to get called out during and after storms when trees come down that block, roadways, sidewalks, and alleys. In turn allowing police and fire to respond to their own calls and not have to worry about being able to get to where they need to be. They do these tasks year round. When the time comes, they also go out and plow the streets and do ice control for Peoria. All crew members are first responders and CPR certified.
