We are a community of hard working people with a commitment to keeping our city safe, clean, and prosperous.

Street Department

The Tipton Street Department is responsible for maintaining the city’s streets, sidewalks, and alleys, and performing seasonal leaf pick and snow removal.

In addition, it replaces and maintains traffic signs, provides trash pickup, curbside recycling, and yard waste disposal. The department also is a resource for Fairview Cemetery, as well as the Park Department for which it supplies equipment, labor, experience and general information.

The Tipton Street Department was established around 1872 with the undertaking of a series of major street improvements. Originally, Tipton’s streets were made of dirt and gravel. In 1890, Tipton became the first town in the state with a street paved entirely of brick. Today, many of our city streets are underlain with those original bricks.

The department operates under the direction of Public Works Manager Michael Terry. It is housed in the city garage, located at 500 Green Street, and is open 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. weekdays.
