Fall 2017 street sweeping scheduleThe City has announced its fall 2017 street sweeping schedule, the first half of which will run tentatively from October 2 through November 3. A second sweeping will take place in November, weather-pending. The schedule is heavily dependent on the weather.
Residents should note that City-provided street sweeping DOES NOT include leaf pickup. DO NOT sweep your leaves into the street. Leaves should be put into compost bags for pickup by GFL Environmental on a weekly basis.
In addition, the City encourages residents whose property includes or borders on drains to do their best to maintain those areas. Keeping drains clear and open can prevent needless street flooding and inconvenience.

Street work scheduled on Huron and PardeeThe City of Taylor will repair sections of the following streets, beginning Thursday, September 28:
- Huron Street (Eureka Road South to the dead end)
- Pardee Street (Eureka Road South to the dead end).
Three streets to be resurfacedThe City of Taylor has contracted with Al’s Asphalt Paving to resurface the following streets:
- Vivian Street - Eureka Road to Cherry Street
- Dean Street - Eureka Road North to Dead End
- Cooper Street - Wick Road to Baske Street
City to repair sections of Fairfax and John Daly The City of Taylor has contracted to repair sections of Fairfax Street from Pardee Road to Brian Street, and John Daly Street from Van Born Road to Joan Avenue.
Work is scheduled to begin September 6 on Fairfax Street and a few days later on John Daly. The concrete repair work will last approximately four to five weeks. The contractor will give notification at least seven days before work is to begin on the street, and will advise residents 24 hours in advance of loss of driveway access. The contractor will begin by saw cutting the sections to be removed, followed by pavement removal, base preparation, drainage structure adjustment and repair and placing and curing concrete. After the concrete has cured for a minimum of five to seven days, work will begin on the other half of the street.
Working hours will be 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Mondays through Fridays.
The street will be worked on one half at a time to allow traffic to continue during and after working hours. However, due to the extent of some of the street repair areas, residents may lose access to the front or side of their property when work is being performed in front of or next door to their property, or on the opposite side of the street. For the residents own convenience, and so that the work can be performed in a safe and timely manner, kindly park vehicles in other locations.
Trash pick-up will continue on the regularly scheduled day. Continue to place the trash receptacles at curbside on the opposite side of the street that work is taking place on, or at the center of the street next to a repair area.
The City of Taylor has contracted with Fiore Enterprises and Al’s Asphalt Paving to perform concrete and asphalt street and sidewalk repairs and water main break restorations at various locations (see list at end of story).
Fall is busy time for concrete, asphalt and water main work
Work started August 28. The repair and restoration work is now scheduled to be completed by October 16, instead of the original announced September 29 date. The contractors will give notification at least seven days before removal work is to begin at the listed locations.
