Streets and Sidewalks
Gridley’s streets and alleys are overseen by Village staff. They identify streets in need of repair and work with the Village Board in prioritizing streets projects. Mark Peterson is the Streets and Sidewalks Superintendent.
Sidewalks that present a safety issue are also identified and prioritized for replacement as time allows.
Residents who want an existing sidewalk replaced or wish to add a new sidewalk where one does not currently exist, should contact Village Hall at 309-747-2000.
