Swansea streets are maintained by our Public Works Department employees. The maintenance includes roadway repair, right-of-way maintenance, street sweeping, snow removal, and the erection and maintenance of street signs. Construction of new streets and major repairs are usually accomplished through contracts with outside firms. Some streets within the Village limits are owned and maintained by either St. Clair County, or the State of Illinois. The Village has jurisdiction over these streets for traffic control, but not for maintenance, repair, or cleaning. The Street Department also maintains all of the Village Parks and Village buildings.
