City of Lebanon Street Department

Welcome to the City of Lebanon Street Department
The following is general information regarding our street department’s routine and seasonal work. We currently have 16 street department employees; Consisting of a secretary, supervisor two crew leaders, seven heavy equipment operators, three light equipment operators, and two street workers.

State Maintenance Contract
We have a maintenance contract with the State of Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT). This contract generates approximately $121,000.00 per year for the routine maintenance of 75 miles of their 95 lane miles of streets inside the city limits of Lebanon. This consists of thirty (30) hours per week sweeping on a routine basis. We also get reimbursed for fixing potholes, removal of dead animals, debris, ice and snow, removal of litter and mowing of the medians. We also bush hog State right of ways back of ditch lines three to four times yearly without reimbursement.

Chipper
This service is provided for disposal of limbs, brush and leaves as related to the resident's routine and normal maintenance of trees, bushes and shrubs upon resident's property. Resident is defined as a single family home or duplex. See attached policy.

Q. Can you go into my driveway and pick up my limbs?

A. No. We cannot do any work on private property.

Seasonal
We operate a curbside leaf vac service during peak leaf removal times. This operation can utilize eight (8) employees. Any leaves picked up after this period must be bagged. We recommend biodegradable bags for convenient mulching.

Q. I had my limbs and leaves piled together at the street and they were not picked up.
A. Leaves and limbs must be separated.

Spring Clean up
We set aside the month of April for our annual spring clean up. This generally takes the entire workforce. Hundreds of tons of debris are collected each year. Some of the rules for our cleanup are that we cannot pick up any hazardous waste. This includes, batteries, used tires, paints, compressors, florescent lights in volume of more than fifteen, used motor oil, antifreeze, etc. We also have a volume amount of what we pickup- approximately that which would fit in an average size pickup truck. We do not accept any contractor or commercial waste and we do not accept waste from vacant properties or outside the city limits of Lebanon.

Q. I had my junk at the street and they did not pick it all up.
A. We have a large number of scavengers that go out ahead of our crews. We should be on your street once per week in April.

Driveway and Ditching
A permit has to be obtained from the Engineering department for any new driveway construction. The length and the diameter will be determined at that time. If the pipe is purchased in town, we will pickup and install. Our Engineering/surveying department determines most ditching work. It is passed onto the Street department in a form if a work order. We do routinely clear ditches of any obstructions; this is generally done after each rainfall.

Q. I have water standing in my front/back yard or my neighbors’ water is draining onto my property.
A. We cannot do any work on private property.

Q. I have water standing in my ditch; I think my neighbors’ driveway pipe is stopped up.
A. We will send someone to check the pipes and clean if necessary.

Work Requests and Work Orders

If another city department needs work assistance from the Street department, a work request is generated from the Engineering Department or Commissioner of Public Works. Under no circumstances are we to do any work on private property without an authorized Work Order.

Street cuts
Street cuts can be from our own utilities or contractors. Contractors are required to put up a $ 1,000.00 street cut bond along with obtaining a permit. In the event the contractor wants us to make repairs, our charge is $ 25.00 per square foot. This charge is taken from the bond. We do repair all of our utility cuts and bill our utilities at a rate of $ 6.00 per square foot. This combined revenue is approximately $ 50,000.00 per year.

Airport
We have approximately 150 acres of airport property that we maintain and bush hog three to four times each year. There is also approximately two miles of security fence that we maintain. We do bill the State Aeronautics Department for fifty (50) percent of our cost of this maintenance. This generates approximately $ 9,000.00 per year.
