UPDATE 5/20/2020

The City of Luverne, like the rest of the country, is continuing to deal with the COVID-19 crisis. I want to thank all of the citizens of Luverne for how well they have dealt with this crisis. Due to our limited health care resources, it is important that we continue to use the practices recommended to prevent the spread of the virus. Please remember to keep social distance of 6 feet, wear a mask anytime you enter any public building and regularly wash your hands. While we have done very well, we are not across the finish line by any means, so we must continue to do what we can to protect each other from this illness.

All utility departments will be back to normal working hours starting 05/11/20.  This includes electric department, water department and street/sanitation department.  Garbage and debris pick up will be back on regular schedule.

City Hall will be opened to the public (limited to 2 customers at a time) starting 5/26/20. Office hours are Monday-Friday 8am-4:30 pm. Customers are asked to practice social distancing and wear some type of facial covering while inside the office. You can also use the drop box, mail payment, call the office, or pay online at luverneal.govtportal.com.

Luverne Public Library will open their doors starting 05/11/20 and limit the number of occupants at a time.  You are asked to wear some type of facial covering while visiting the library. Please call 334-335-5326 for more information about the library opening time and restrictions.

Turner Park has opened the walking trail only at this time.  The gate will be open for walking only daily 8 am-8 pm.  The playground and all other activities at the park are still suspended. The County Lake will remain open. 

While these are very difficult times, we can and will get through them. Thanks for your continued cooperation and patience.

-- Mayor Ed Beasley

STREET DEPARTMENT

The Street Department maintains the City streets for the citizens who live within the city limits of Luverne. The duties of the department encompass a wide variety of jobs which include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Debris pickup
  • Mosquito spraying (this is done in warmer months usually beginning in May and ending in September of each year)
  • Repair sidewalks and curb gutters that are damaged
  • Repairing potholes and striping city streets
  • Sweep streets on a weekly basis
  • Laying of pipe and cleaning of roadside ditches
  • Clearing debris from storm water systems to allow the free flow of storm water
  • Repairing washouts
  • Maintain/replace stop signs, street signs, speed limit signs, and directional signs

We collect an average of 125-150 cubic yards of debris each week and we are able to carry this to the county landfill, which is operated by Crenshaw County Landfill.

SANITATION DEPARTMENT

The Sanitation Department strives to maintain a safe, efficient and effective waste collection and disposal system that meets the needs of the citizens of Luverne and comply with all applicable regulations and standards. 

The solid waste (garbage) routes require two packer trucks, with three employees per truck. We collect an average of 225-250 tons of waste per week and haul it to the Coffee County Landfill.

Household garbage pickup is scheduled once a week.
