Public Works

The Public Works Department is responsible for constructing and maintaining the City’s infrastructure. We accomplish some of the work with our employees and equipment; the rest is contracted to private firms, such as household garbage collection, street sweeping, and grass cutting in some common areas. In this way, our citizens receive the benefit of the best service at the least possible cost.

Our department works in conjunction with the Mayor, City Council members, other City departments as well as various utility companies during both routine and emergency situations; we respond on call to work during emergency situations in order to clear roads after storms, spills and during snow and icy weather.
