How Fargo’s city workers are shaping our city

How Fargo’s city workers are shaping our city

The diligence of drivers like Keith, who prioritize cleaning streets from gutter to gutter, can keep motorcyclists and bicyclists from wiping out on the road. This vital activity often goes unnoticed by residents. “When you go to bed at night, there might be sand or a can of water in the gutter. In the morning, it was gone,” he said. With each season comes a new job for Public Works crews who beautify Fargo by picking up windblown debris after the snow melts. Crews are responsible for doing the heavy lifting during the spring cleanup effort, repairing potholes, clearing sewer lines to prevent backups, mowing and spraying weeds on city property. “It’s amazing how busy we are,” Keith said. “There’s always something to do.”
