Street Sweeping Program

Downtown and commercial areas are swept as part of the Grove City Service Department's street sweeping program. These areas are swept twice monthly for a twelve month period. Main streets are swept twice monthly for an eight month period and residential streets and municipal parking lots are swept once monthly for an eight month period. Questions can be directed to 614-277-1100.

Snow and Ice Removal

The Grove City Service Department salts and removes snow on city streets. Plows typically are not used for snow accumulation under 2 inches. Road treatments are prioritized with main arteries cleared first (i.e. Broadway, Stringtown Road, Hoover Road, Kingston Avenue). This is followed by secondary streets. Neighborhood side streets and courts are plowed last, but not salted (maintaining main roads takes precedence over these streets). Property owners are responsible for clearing their sidewalks and we ask their help in keeping storm drains clear to help with standing water. If you have questions or concerns, please call 614-277-1100.
