PWD Miles of Streets Graph
In Minnesota, one of the major objectives of a city is snow removal. Following a snowfall of 2-inches or more, it is our goal to have all city streets plowed within an 8 hour period. To aid the city in achieving its goal, no parking along city streets is permitted within 24 hours of such a snowfall.

To report potholes, storm damaged trees, or for any other street maintenance concerns contact the Public Works Department.
Parks Maintenance
The Parks Division is responsible for the following:
  • Athletic fields maintenance
  • Buildings and grounds maintenance
  • Irrigation system maintenance
  • Mowing and trimming
  • Parks and shelters maintenance
  • Playground apparatus
  • Skating rinks maintenance
  • Trail maintenance and construction

Chaska Clean-Up Day

Every spring and fall, the city holds Cleanup Day, where citizens have an opportunity to clean up the community, as well as their own lawn and garden waste.

Spring Clean Up is the 1st Saturday in May and Fall Clean Up is the last Saturday in October from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Athletic Park, a half mile west of Highway 41 on 1st Street. Clean up your yard and dispose of yard waste free of charge. Disposal of yard waste includes leaves, grass, brush and garden waste. No bags, no brush larger than 3 inches in diameter and 4 feet in length. For additional information call Municipal Services 952-448-4335 or email us at
