Public Works Department

The Public Works Department is made up of several
divisions all working together to deliver excellent
customer service, and a high standard of safety to
residents, visitors, and members of the business
community. The department provides the community
clean, safe drinking water; oversight of industrial
wastewater pretreatment and treatment of wastewater;
fosters the beauty of our community by maintaining
our City’s infrastructure including greenspace and
public trees; collects garbage and bulky items for
disposal; completes a variety of paving, water, sewer
and construction projects each year; and keeps our
streets safe for passage.

Our primary function is to maintain, protect and ensure
the future of the City’s infrastructure while educating
the public on available services, as well as supporting
a wide variety of special projects and events.  Public
Works staff is responsible for inspecting work
performed by our City employees, developers and
independent contractors. Public Works staff also works
closely with Community Development and other City
staff to ensure the continued growth of our community.
While continued growth is one of our primary
considerations, sustainable growth and a better quality
of life can only be achieved if we remain vigilant in our
protection of public health, ensure compliance with
environmental laws and regulations and continue to
protect our limited natural resources.
