Contractors should be respectful of citizens in neighborhoods where construction is taking place. Nobody wants to drive through mud on their way home. A proper construction access minimizes track out onto City streets. Contractors should take as much pride in the ‘PROCESS’ of constructing a project as they do in the ‘FINISHED PRODUCT.’
There is no ‘bad time’ for planning which plants to use for your project. For more information on proper native vegetation please email ‘email@example.com’ or call 308-233-3273. You can also stop by the City of Kearney Public Works Department at 1919 15th Ave.
These designed stormwater treatment facilities are ideal for any environment. Pocket wetlands filter, clean and store water from multiple sources. Thy act as sponges by holding flood waters and keeping rivers at normal levels.
Street sweepers are at their optimal potential when they are moving at 3-5 mph. They will ALWAYS have their flashing lights on when they are in operation. Please approach with caution and give them ample space.
The City of Kearney has multiple street sweepers that run regular routes. These street sweepers are NOT designed to pick up only leaves. To get to their regular routes the street sweepers will be avoiding areas where it is obvious that the property owners have purposely moved leaves off their lawn onto the street.
Compost is ready to use when it is dark, brown and crumbly with an earthy odor. It should not be moldy and rotten. Compost should be somewhat fluffy and does not have to be powdery. The original materials should not be recognizable in the compost. Incompletely decomposed materials used in gardens will compete for nitrogen with the soil.
The City of Kearney has multiple drop-off points for hazardous materials: 3820 Box Butte Ave; 1919 5th Ave; 6711 W. 56th St.; South Side of Hilltop Mall off of 48th St.; S. Railroad and Ave M
By diverting the runoff from our roof, there will be a reduction in stormwater runoff into nearby waterways- such as the Wood River and Platter River. An average barrel costs between $50 and $120. You can make your own out of any used water tight container.
This form of Stormwater Best Management Practice needs a few things to keep in mind: the infiltration rate must be slow enough to lose pollutants but fast enough to avoid prolonged periods of ponded water. It’s usually thought that 24 hours draw down time is optimal.
