Public Works

OverviewThe mission of the Public Works Department is to operate and maintain the City’s public infrastructure, and provide repair and construction projects in the most efficient and effective manner possible. To do this in the most effective way possible, Public Works routinely searches out augmented funding through various grant programs. 

The Public Works Department has three divisions:

  • Engineering
  • General Services (Street Maintenance)
  • Water and Wastewater
Major activities include management, maintenance and operation of the street and storm drain systems, water and sewer systems, buildings and grounds, and vehicle fleet and equipment. Public Works is also responsible for the construction and implementation of most of the City's annual Capital Improvement Program.
