Metro Asphalt will open up sections of roadway when it is safe to drive on. If residents drive on the warm asphalt or tack materials, they can track that onto their driveways and into their garages.
We also ask that the residents don’t run sprinkler systems until after the contractor is done with the street maintenance. During paving residents will need to park on the adjacent side streets. Thank you for your cooperation!

The City replaces a number of curbs each year as part of the annual street maintenance program. Unfortunately, each curb cannot be replaced in a single maintenance cycle. For curbs that do not get a full replacement, City Staff determines if intermediary maintenance is necessary until a permanent fix is available.
If intermediary action is necessary, the City will install temporary asphalt patching. Temporary asphalt patching is a proven technique that will protect the taxpayers investment in our infrastructure while stretching our maintenance budget. If you have concerns about the condition of your curbs or concerns about temporary asphalt patching, please contact the Parkville Public Works at 816-741-7676.

Important Notice for sewer service customers with bank autopay! Due to technical difficulties, last month’s sewer bill balance was carried over to the most recent bill regardless if payment was correctly withdrawn. This makes the most recent bill look to have an outstanding balance.
We have corrected this technical issue, and can confirm that upcoming sewer service bank withdraws will be only for the most recent service period. Please call Parkville City Hall with any questions 816-741-7676.
