|Location:||1104 W. Third Street (Central Garage)|
The Street Department operates out of the Central Garage to maintain city streets, including repairs and snow clearing.
Responsibilities of the 12 full-time employees in the Street Department include:
- 120* miles of streets*(prior to the annexation of Winona Township)
- over 200 alleys
- 10.5 miles of flood dike
- 5 flood pumping stations
- 4 harbors
- 17 downtown parking lots
The Winona Street Department uses both chemical and mechanical snow removal techniques, depending on the conditions and amount of snowfall. When plowing is necessary, they attempt to clear the entire city within three days. In order to accomplish this, the city has established an Alternate Side Parking ordinance (Section 61.56.of the Winona City Code.)
Alternate Side Parking
From November 15th to March 15th, between the hours of 12:01 a.m. and 6:30 a.m., vehicles may only be parked on the side of the street with even numbered houses on even calendar dates, and on the side with odd numbered houses on odd calendar dates.
This policy is designed to allow plowing and removal of snow to the curb on at least one side of each street. It also allows time for cleaning leaves and debris from storm drains in the fall, and removing sand in the spring.
