The Street Department is in charge of maintaining alleys and shoulders in Pontiac. Alley and shoulder maintenance takes place between late March and mid-November. Residents wishing to request service can phone city hall at (815) 844-3396 or complete a work order.
Alley and shoulder grading requests are evaluated and work is completed only if warranted.
Crews may only rework rock already in place. Gravel is only added if needed.
Grass alleys are not graveled.
Not sure if your alley belongs to the city? Contact the Street Department at (815) 844-5025 or Building and Zoning at (815) 844-1038.
