General information

In general, the Public Works Department is responsible for constructing & maintaining Gardendale’s infrastructure and providing quality services to the citizens of Gardendale. Under the leadership of Jeff Holliyan, Public Works Director, with the aid of a knowledgeable and experienced supervisory and administrative staff, our employees strive to perform our mission. Public Works Touching Lives Everyday There are approximately 500 streets in the City of Gardendale. We cover about 57 square miles of area containing 400 lane miles of city streets, as well as 30 lane miles of Jefferson County roadways, and 52 lane miles of State of Alabama highways. We accomplish some of our mission with our employees and equipment; the rest is contracted to private firms with our consistent watchful eye on our public funds. Because of this, our citizens receive the benefit of the best service at the least possible cost. Listed below is a brief summary of some of the ways our department works behind the scenes with quiet dedication. We truly believe that… Public Works Department Affects the Outcome • Review plans and specifications We work to ensure that proposed commercial, industrial and residential development is consistent with city regulations and subdivision master plans. We review proposed projects for possible future expenditures the city would be forced to assume. We also follow these projects as construction progresses and inspect completion of streets as well as improvements for release of any bonds held by the city. • Maintain Resource Center Our office maintains a resource center of drawings, photographs, newspaper articles and other pertinent records of past projects, which helps to provide historical data for future improvements. We keep our citizens informed of our activities and functions through: media, flyers, door hangers, council meetings, and door to door contact. • Roadway Repair & Maintenance We maintain roadways by patching potholes, driveways, shoulders, and around mailboxes. • Drainage Easement Maintenance We maintain the following items along our city easements. This involves our supervisors’ awareness and patrol of areas where potential problems may exist and scheduling crews accordingly. However, we do not accept new easements unless the road right-of-way is being affected. Drain Pipes Grates Manholes Headwalls From time to time we have a need to arrange for a temporary easement. When the need is determined, our administrative staff prepares such and the property owner will sign and have the document notarized and return to our office before work begins. However, this is only temporary until our crew has completed any construction necessary. • Brush Pickup We operate two brush trucks 5 days a week. Our trucks pick up tree trimmings and shrubbery cuttings that are placed near the curb or street. We also pick up leaves and pine straw placed in bags. Our brush policy allows one truckload per household per 30 days; additional loads are charged to the resident at $250.00 per load. Citizens who contract the cutting of any trees must inform the contractor to to dispose of the debris, as the City will not pick up this brush. BRUSH, TRASH & LIMB POLICY 1. Tree trimmings and shrubbery cuttings shall be placed near the curb or street. All tree trunks must be cut in three (3) foot lengths and be no more than two (2) feet in diameter. Anything larger will not be picked up. Removal of stumps will be left to the brush truck operators’ discretion. 2. Leaves and pine straw should be put in containers or bags to be removed from April through October of each year. Mulched leaves and grass clippings must be bagged for pickup year-round. The leaf vacuum machines will run from November through January each year. 3. Contractors – If residents contract the cutting of any trees, it is the responsibility of the contractor to dispose of the debris. 4. Residential – Each residence shall be allowed one truckload of trees/brush per month. Should a resident have more than one truckload of brush in any one month, the owner must pay a fee to the City to dispose of any consecutive load(s); additional loads will be picked up according to the operators’ routes. 5. Building debris: Plaster, lumber, roofing, concrete and brick resulting from the repairs or demolition of any building will not be moved. 6. Dead animals: Dogs, cats, etc. will be removed from public rights-of-way; cattle, horses, etc., will be removed by the owner at the owner’s expense. 7. We also provide a ONE TIME pickup of moving boxes for new residents. The city has the following 2 Public Works Supervisors who oversee the day to day operations of the department. - Jerome Jackson – Public Works Construction Supervisor - Paul Tidwell – Public Works Vegetation and Right-Of-Way Supervisor • Brush Recycling Program As good stewards and good citizens we were innovative in our brush recycling program which began in 2002. Since that time the program has evolved to not only a savings to our city and environment but also revenue from our mulch sales. During last year we unloaded at the brush site approximately 1,400 times. If these loads had been carried to the landfill it would have cost our city around $170,000. This does not take into account the extra wear and tear on our vehicles, fuel cost, nor the time lapse creating an inconvenience to our citizens. Our presence is cost effective and the best possible management practice. • Leaf Vacuum Service Our leaf vacuum season begins November 1 and ends January 31. We have two vacuum trucks that run 5 days a week during leaf season. We pick up loose leaves our citizens have placed at curbside. Mulched grass or leaves must be bagged for pickup. • Herbicide Application Our men are certified in the application of herbicides to right of way vegetation. This reduces insect breeding and improves visibility as well as enhancing the appearance of our roadways. • Construction We are not in the construction business but we are in the business of maintaining our city’s infrastructure and this includes the following: Drain Pipe Installation Manhole Construction Manhole Cover Construction Headwall Construction Grate Construction Our construction crews have been trained in installation of drainage pipe which requires knowledge in the proper use of a transit as well as construction techniques which allow maximum water flow. Public Works will install up to 100 feet of pipe on our city right of way after reimbursement from the homeowner for the cost of materials. This cost is based on a price list that is regularly updated to reflect current pricing. • Fleet Maintenance We presently have a full service Fleet Maintenance Department where we repair and maintain all vehicle fleet for the City. Our fleet consists of various vehicles and machines, from tractors and front-end loaders to dump trucks and pick-up trucks. With our knowledgeable mechanics we have cut cost on most repairs up to 50%. The Fleet Maintenance Department consistently saves the city $35,000 - $40,000 each year. • Grass Mowing Public Works cuts and maintains our city right of way. Grass mowing season begins April 1 and runs through October 31. We keep the grass cut on all city streets as well as the 8 county roads within the city, and State Hwy 31. During grass mowing season we run tractors 5 days a week. It takes approximately 3 weeks to mow all grass on the west side of the city, and 2 weeks to mow all grass on the east side. • Litter Removal We assign men daily to remove litter along our city right of way. Our employees walk more than 1000 miles yearly to make sure the city is clean. • Animal Control We remove deceased animals from our city’s roadway, creating a healthier environment for our citizens. • First Responders Public Works personnel are on call 24/7 and are among the First Responders during emergencies and disasters. We are called out regularly by the Gardendale Police Dispatch, often working above and beyond the call of duty to maintain or restore needed services, and also working long after other First Responders have departed the scene in order to ensure that clean-up efforts are completed. In 2002 The Department of Homeland Security formally acknowledged Public Works Departments in the United States as First Responders to emergency situations. In addition, the National Incident Management System requires Public Works personnel to be compliant with their training standards. This year our men have responded to16 after hour calls from the Gardendale Police Department to clear fallen trees from the right of way in order for our citizens to have a clear pathway of travel. • Utility Placement We have been delegated the responsibility by the City Council for the regulation of all utilities on our city’s right of way and to preserve the integrity, operational safety and function of the roadway facility. We review all plans with utility companies such as AT&T, Alabama Power, Birmingham Water and developers on any road cuts, after which we issue excavation permits accordingly. After permits are issued we inspect completion of projects to insure the integrity of our roadway. Our utility excavation permits totaled $4,297.00 in revenue last year See City Utility Ordinance 2003-17 & City Ordinance 2004-02. • Street Paving We maintain a data base of all 500 streets in Gardendale with information relative to date of last paving, length & width of roadway, ward in which it is located, and condition. This list is presented to the council yearly for a review of possible upcoming projects. • Street Striping We maintain a data base of all 500 streets in Gardendale, with information relative to reflectivity of striping as well as last paving and length & width of roadway. This list is also presented to the council yearly for a review of possible upcoming projects. • Sign Repair, Replacement and Removal We also maintain a data base by streets relative to number of signs on that street, conditions of existing signs and corrections that might be needed. At this time we have 3,500 signs in our City. Sign Removal Policy – By authority of the City Council we have been instructed to remove signs from the right of way that obstruct sight distance or hinder maintenance of our city streets. This would include garage sale or political signs. • Right of Way Clearing We remove dead trees, limbs & vegetation from city right-of-way if it obstructs visibility or has fallen. • Roadway Shoulder Maintenance Proper shoulder maintenance is the key to the life of our city streets. Washouts cause our roadways to deteriorate, as well as create a safety hazard for our traveling public. • Roadway Condition Inventory We maintain a data base of all street names, width of right of way, length of roadway and condition. As First Responders during inclement weather our supervisors travel all streets, reporting possible needs such as sand, tree removal, etc. to our crews. • Beautification One of our Mission Statements is to beautify Gardendale and we take an active role all over our city. We keep city right of way trimmed and free of trash and debris, as well as enhance some areas with flowers, shrubs, and seasonal décor. • Spring & Fall City Wide Clean Up Two times a year our citizens look forward to clearing unwanted items from their yards or basements. During our clean-up week in Spring (April) and Fall (October) we pick up junk placed at the right of way. • Welcome to Gardendale New Resident – Moving Box Pickup Often we are the first contact new residents have with our city. They are normally asking about services provided, such as garbage pickup, etc. It is at this time we provide any information requested as well as offer to mail them a city map in addition to scheduling our new residence moving box pickup.
