Street Department

Grass Clippings

Residents are asked not to throw or discard leaves, grass clippings or other debris into the city streets.

The accumulation of such debris washed into storm sewers creates a maintenance problem that is costly in terms of manpower.

Snow Removal

According to Auburn’s Municipal Codes, the following is applicable for all homeowners, renters and businesses after inclement weather:

Cooperation by residents and businesses are encouraged without the need to invoke penalty provided by city codes.


The Street Department tries to clear the snow back to the curb as far as possible. Due to the amount of snow accumulated some years, we aren’t able to get as close as other years. We can only get so close to the mailboxes but we do our best. Property owners are responsible for clearing around the mailboxes and driveways.

If you have questions concerning this notice please call Auburn City Hall at (402) 274 - 3420
