The Sunset Hills Public Works Department provide minor maintenance activities to streets throughout the year and plow the snow from them during snow events.
They also respond to resident complaints for a host of issues. When City Hall receives a call, the complaint is logged into an Access database we developed in-house. The Street Superintendent has a computer in his office that is networked into this system and it reports to him all of the pertinent information so he can dispense the maintenance request directly to his personnel.
Something to keep in mind, all of the work that the department does, only reflects those streets in the city's network. The Interstate highways of I-44 and I-270 are not in our network, nor are Lindbergh Boulevard, Gravois or Watson. These are in the MoDOT network. Sappington is a county-level street. Also there are a number of private streets. We provide snow removal service wherever possible to private streets, but MoDOT and St. Louis County are responsible for their jurisdictional pavements respectfully.
Obviously, with 11 men and 54 center-line miles of streets, the Street Department keeps busy with maintenance related activities. They always have more things on their list to get to, than manpower. The Street Superintendent places a daily task list on a page at this website that is available to you here. If you have something that needs attention on your city maintained street, you can call Jerry Eime at 314-272- 2458 or email him with your question or concern.
Many concerns can be answered by knowing right of way and easement matters. The Department has a number of these items covered on this FAQ page about rights of way.
