Within the City of Frisco boundaries, who is responsible for cleaning up the street/roads after an auto accident? It seems lately that little to no clean up is taking place -- there are auto parts/glass littering several intersections. Nothing substantial but unsightly nevertheless. On the same subject of clean streets -- does the City have any rules/laws on construction debris left along the streets ... i.e.: spilled concrete, rocks, etc. Thanks for your inputs/feedback, K. Wilkens

The wrecker companies contracted to remove the vehicles are responsible to clean debris from the roadway. While that normally occurs, there may be some situations that in an effort to get the roadway open due to traffic congestion, that a comprehensive job is not done. I'll mention it to the supervisors and see if they can be a little more careful. Additionally, we can ask the city street sweeper to come through at a later hours to remove any remaining debris.

Contruction debris would be like any other debris and would fall under the littering statute.

With regard to general street cleaning, who and how often are major intersections cleaned, i.e. Legacy/121? I travel North/Southbound on Legacy daily and when stopped at the intersection one can't help but notice that broken glass/shards/nails/bolts/cigarette butts/lighters/etc. litter this and probably every other major intersection. As fate would have it, the next day I noticed a large screw punctured one of my tires...can't imagine where I got it from?

The City of Frisco owns and operates one street sweeper. Arterial roads as well as the major entry road to each subdivision is swept on a monthly schedule. Citizen requests are addressed as they are phoned in.
