Traffic Division

The Traffic Division is comprised of 2 full time employees and 1 part time seasonal employee. The traffic division is responsible for the maintenance of streetlights, emergency weather sirens, street signs and posts and all painted street markings.

The summer months are very busy for the Traffic Division as this is the time of year the streets and parking lots receive their new coats of paint and striping. The Traffic Division is also called upon to assist with barricading streets for parades, special events and emergency situations.

Traffic Commission

The Traffic Commission meets on the third Monday of each month so it is very important to plan ahead and have your request added to the agenda in a timely manner prior to your event.

The Traffic Commission reviews requests on the following items:


-         Parking

-         Parade Permits

-         Street Closures

-         Traffic Signage / Signals

-         Cross-walks

-         Speed Limit


Submit your Traffic Commission request to the Mitchell Department of Public Safety to be added to the Traffic Commission meeting agenda. Complete information must be to the Public Safety Secretary by 10:00am on the Wednesday, prior to the Traffic Commission meeting.


Once the permit is approved in committee it will be voted on by the full council later in the evening.
