The City spends $36,150 annually on traffic paint and reflective glass beads for pavement marking. In areas where maximum durability is needed, such as where school crosswalks are located on high volume roads, a melt down plastic material is used.
The City’s two two-man paint crews start their season in May and finish around October when inclement weather begins. Each crew consists of one full-time and one seasonal employee. One crew works a day shift from 7 am to 3:30 pm repainting centerlines and edge lines. The second crew works nights from midnight to 7:30 am repainting crosswalks, arrows, curbs, and stop bars.
