Streetlighting, signage, snow removal, and paving are all city services. To report needed maintenance, fill in a request on this site under CONTACT US, contact any city official, or contact Mayor Hilbrecht at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Other than deed restrictions, the City defaults to Metro standards regarding property maintenance and activities.
The City requests that any drainage issue be submitted to a Crossgate official before being submitted to the Metropolitan Sewer District. In responding to individual requests, MSD often does not take into consideration the broader implications of their work regarding community aesthetics and property values.
