Department Overview

The Streets & Sanitation Division of the Public Works Department list of responsibilities is two-fold. These responsibilities are: 1) the performance of maintenance of Granite City’s 300 plus miles of roadway, 500 miles of sidewalk, 3,000 street signs, and 1,000 sewer collection structures and 2) to maintain the health and safety of the community through the enforcement of the sanitary ordinances enacted by the City Council.

We do NOT, however, collect garbage or other refuse, as that service is performed by the private sector; and we also do NOT perform maintenance of street lights, as they are owned and maintained by Ameren IP Electric Company. However, if a street light is out, you may report it directly to Ameren IP by calling: 1-800-755-5000, or visit their website by clicking HERE.

Mission Statement

Our Mission is to provide our customers (the citizens of Granite City and our visitors) with the best streets for their use and convenience and to continue to be aggressive with maintenance and monitoring of all of the items that are assigned to the Street & Sanitation Department so as to promote the health, safety and welfare of our community.
