The Street Department is responsible for maintaining a safe and dependable street system, allowing citizens and visitors alike to travel safely and efficiently. The Street Department coordinates for all Town owned streets, sidewalks, storm drainage and related infrastructure.
The Street Department consists of five personnel that maintain 60 miles of streets within the Town of Hope Mills. The Street Department provides repair services for sidewalks, curbs and gutters, storm drain systems, signage, and roadway and street sweeping. The Street Department also has an Adopt-A-Street Program.
Over time, all streets require some type of corrective maintenance. Techniques such as asphalt patching, surface treatments and asphalt overlays are used to repair pavement and maintain an acceptable pavement condition. These activities are generally used to correct defects and tend to be more expensive than preventive maintenance alternatives.
To report a street related maintenance problem, please call Public Works at 910 424-4555 ext 3383. If the problem occurs after regular business hours of 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM, please call the Hope Mills Police Department at 910 425-4103.

Mosquito Spraying Program
Hope Mills will begin spraying for mosquitoes appriximately within the first two weeks of May 2011 and will spray areas on a weekly basis through mid-September. Spraying will begin on or about 9:00 PM on Tuesday or Wednesday night. Wind or rain will delay spraying until the next calm and dry evening.
For the mosquito program to work we need the cooperation of every resident in our Town. Here are some tips in the prevention of mosquito breeding grounds:
Check for items that might hold water including wheelbarrows, tires, hubcaps, toys, garden equipment, pool covers, tarps, plastic sheeting, pipes, drains, boats, canoes, recycling bins and trash.
Remove standing water in ponds, ditches, clogged rain gutters, flower pots, plant saucers, puddles, buckets, jars and cans.
Completely change water in birdbaths and wading pools weekly.
Drill drainage holes in tire swings.
Stock ornamental ponds and fountains with fish that eat mosquito larvae.
Avoid mosquitoes by staying indoors at dawn and dusk when they are most active.
Wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants while outdoors.
Apply insect repellent that contains DEET. Follow directions carefully.
Install or repair window and door screens to keep mosquitoes out.
The Fleet Maintenance department consist of two employees who handle all logistics for the Town's 100+ vehicles and pieces of equipment, and small engine repairs.
