Public Works

The City of Piqua, Public Works Department, is responsible for:

  • Street Maintenance
  • Street Sweeping
  • Leaf Removal
  • Snow Removal
  • Pavement Markings
  • Alley Maintenance
  • Regulatory Signs
  • Right-of-Way Inspections

The Public Works Department has ten full-time employees that maintain approximately 215.3 lane miles of streets and 20.9 lane miles of alleys. The department also maintains the right-of-way, regulatory signs, and street closings for special events, maintains landscaping and turf in the right-of-way, is on call for weather-related emergencies, and assists other departments. 


Patching streets and alleys is a temporary repair to areas until resurfacing or reconstruction is scheduled. The Public Works Department uses "hot mix" asphalt from local plants during warmer months. During colder months, the department uses "cold patch" material due to asphalt plants being closed for the winter. Patching crews check main thoroughfares, residential streets, and alleys regularly. You will see crews out during warmer months using our Dura-Patcher for road and alley patching.
