This Division is responsible for the maintenance of all City streets, alleys, right-of-ways, utility easements, facilities and storm water drainage systems within the City of Borger. In addition, the Street Division provides direct and in-direct support to other organizations responding to both man-made and natural disasters.
Functions of the department include:
- Street resurfacing
- Repair and construction of sidewalks and curbs

In addition, the department provides care and maintenance of trees in the public right-of-way, in order to safeguard against accidents, and help keep our city trees looking their best. Whether patching roads or building sidewalks, the Street Department strives to make transportation smooth and easy.
This department also works to assure the movement of emergency vehicles during storm periods, to protect the public from rapidly flowing water or flash floods, and to minimize losses and property damage resulting from uncontrolled storm water runoff. The department is constantly working towards drainage improvements for the City of Borger.
