Streets and Grounds 

The Public Services Streets Division maintains the City's roadways and rights-of-way to achieve their maximum design life and to ensure the continuation of efficient and safe transit on all City streets and sidewalks. This is accomplished through the use of street-sweepers, pothole repair, street re-surfacing, curbing, sidewalk installation and repair, and streetlight and traffic signal maintenance. The division also trims tree limbs and removes debris from the public rights-of-way. They maintain and improve the City's stormwater drains and systems to ensure that they perform to the their designed capacity.

The City parks, street median landscaping and the public cemetery are maintained by the Grounds Division. The Grounds Division maintains over 350 acres of parks, athletic fields, city facilities, medians and roadsides. They assist community organizations in the preparation of community events such as the Apopka Art and Foliage Festival, the Christmas Parade and festivities. Grounds crews maintain the Northwest Recreation Complex and work closely with the Recreation Division to prepare for sports events and other community functions held at the park.
