The City of Guymon will begin its Street Maintenance Sealcoat Project Monday, Sept. 20.
All vehicles on the streets selected for this year’s sealcoat project, need to be relocated during the time of maintenance.
This project, paid for with the Capital Improvement Projects Fund (CIP), is the start of a yearly preventative maintenance program for the streets of Guymon. The City hopes to have all streets in Guymon covered over a 10 year period, depending upon the CIP funds available for the project each year.
By Monday, Sept. 20, streets which need to be cleared are North 21st St. from Sunset to Roosevelt; North 19th St. from Sunset to Highway 64; North Canyon from 21st to 24th; North Beaver from 21st to 24th; North Oklahoma from 15th to 12th; North 12th from Sunset to Highway 412; and Quinn from Sixth to 17th Streets.
According to City of Guymon Public Works Director Ivan Clark, the streets department can sealcoat around 40,000 square yards of street in one day.
“It will take a few days to complete the first streets,” Clark said. “Further notice will be given out for the other streets as the project continues.”
Clark also said that prior to the actual sealcoat, crews are coming through sealing cracks, filling pot holes and performing other maintenance necessary to prepare the streets.
“Notices will be handed out on a door-to-door basis by Highway Contractors, to let all residents know that vehicles need to be removed from the street,” Clark said.
The neon notice tells residents that their street needs to be cleared of all vehicles before 8 a.m. on the date it is scheduled to have the actual sealcoat applied. If the resident is unable to move their vehicle, the notice also states that the City of Guymon will remove any vehicles left on the street at the resident’s expense.
Clark said this is why it’s necessary to alert the public via various Medias and door-to-door to allow residents to meet the city’s request.
Any resident, who lives on the above named streets and is unable to move their vehicle from the street by Monday, should contact Clark at City Hall at 580-338-0137 to avoid towing fees.
