Streets Department

The mission of the Streets Department is to provide the maintenance of all streets and alleys plus traffic engineering and infrastructure maintenance services to the traveling public in our community so they can experience an enjoyable, safe, efficient and reliable walk, bike or automobile ride.

Landscape Waste Facility

Any person, (including residents where no charge applies) or contractor hauling landscape waste to the Potts Lane facility must first go to the Paris City Hall, located at 206 South Central Ave and ask for a free residential permit or pay the appropriate commercial disposal fees.

Any person or contractor hauling landscape waste to the Potts Lane facility must first go to City Hall and pay the appropriate fees, based on the size of the truck or trailers hauling capacity and get a receipt which must be presented to the facility supervisor prior to unloading. In order to accommodate a situation, where multiple loads will be hauled to the facility, then that person or entity may purchase a sufficient amount of receipts to facilitate direct trips to the landscape facility.

Tipping Fees

The following fees are based on the hauling capacity of the vehicle. Upon paying the appropriate fee, the City Clerk’s office will issue a duplicate receipt to the customer. The customer will be required to surrender one copy of the receipt to the Potts Lane custodian prior to unloading and keep the second copy for their records.

In order to accommodate a situation, where multiple loads will be hauled to the facility, then that person or entity may purchase a sufficient amount of receipts to facilitate direct trips to the Potts Lane disposal site.
