At your service: Greg Chapman
This time of year, street sweepers are out in full force. Peak times are during the fall and spring, but street sweeping continues year-round in Bloomington. Leaves, storm debris, road work and construction, and even car accident clutter, mean that the to-do list for a street sweeper is always a busy one.
After 16 years on the job, Equipment Operator Greg Chapman knows the inner workings of street sweeping vehicles and what it takes to run one. He enjoys working with them. With their size and a top speed of 20 miles per hour, people take notice.
“Residents give us a thumbs up when we go by. Kids like to watch and stare,” Chapman said. “I think people appreciate what we do for them.”
