Public Works / Streets / Utilities

Street Sweeping: We have moved into our off season for street sweeping. Throughout this part of the year, the City of Edgewater randomly sweeps streets once each month, with no posted schedule. This is due to possible weather not allowing us to sweep when we plan to sweep.

Civic Center

Construction Camera: The Construction Camera is up and operational! We have also added a link, that will be updated each week, with the entire video of still frame pictures of construction for the site. Please visit the City of Edgewater website to view current still photos of the construction or past time lapse videos.

City Clerk

Election Results: The election was Certified by Jefferson County on November 20, 2017. Our new Mayor and City Council members will be sworn in at our December 7, 2017, regular meeting. Once again, Laura Keegan is our new Mayor, John Beltrone and Caleb Rountree are our new City Council Members and Janet Spangenberg was re-elected for another 4-year term. It was an exciting election and refreshing to see all the candidates/residents interested in bettering our Community.

Board Openings: Do you have any interest in serving on a volunteer board for the City of Edgewater? If so, the City has several current openings. These openings are filled by the mayor following a application and interview by each respected board. Below are the current openings:
