Street Cleaning

The Public Works Department is responsible for keeping all public streets clean and clear of debris. Some streets are cleaned using the street sweeper machine on a regular basis. Inmate labor provided by the Franklin County Sheriff's Office through coordination of the Rocky Mount Police Department helps with miscellaneous street and right-of-way cleaning.

Presently, the Public Works Department cleans main arterial streets weekly, and residential and collector streets bi-weekly, except during the autumn months when leaves may damage the equipment.
