PUBLIC WORKS & WATER
What can you flush?
You should ONLY flush human waste and toilet paper. Check out this educational video created by the City of Spokane:
Public Works Superintendent
The City’s Public Works Superintendent manages a team of exceptional individuals whose responsibility it is to maintain Parchment’s streets, parks, and recreation facilities, stormwater system, and city buildings. Much of the work assigned to DPW is seasonal in nature and includes snow removal, street maintenance, and pothole patching, sidewalk repair, sewer line repair, property maintenance, and mowing, storm drain cleaning and repair, and maintaining City Hall and other City facilities. Please contact the City Manager at 269-492-3263 if you have any concerns.

Friendly Winter Reminders
Public sidewalks provide safe routes to schools, bus stops, and other important destinations. City Code requires all sidewalks to be cleared of snow and ice throughout the winter season.
The Parchment Fire Department requests property owners to clear snow away from any fire hydrants on or adjacent to their property. Should there be a fire nearby, it is imperative that firefighters have clear access to fire hydrants so that fire hoses can be immediately attached and used to fight the fire. We know that it can be challenging to keep up with winter maintenance, however, good property stewardship is appreciated by the City of Parchment and your fellow neighbors as well. If you become aware of a neighbor who might need assistance with property maintenance this winter, lend a hand if you are able.
