The City of Knoxville's Public Service Department is divided into 6 zones (service area). Each Service Area delivers all citizens' public services on pre-determined scheduled routes. The goal of this decentralized structure is for each area to be 100% self-sufficient and provide faster and better services to the areas they serve.
Each service Area consist of 18 employees that are responsible for all brush & leaf removal, street sweeping, right-of way mowing, pothole patching, snow removal, etc. for their designed area.
Each Service Area is also equipped with the same amount of equipment:
* 3 Knuckleboom trucks for brush removal
* 3 Leaf Machines for leaf removal
* 3 Salt Spreaders
* 1 Pothole Patcher
* 1 Street Sweeper
* Right of Way Mower
In addition to the routine services provided, Service Area 1 responsibilities include special events, trash pickup for downtown, and a night-shift crew.
