About Us

The Public Works Department is committed to providing the community with a safe, clean and healthy environment through the design, construction, maintenance and management of the vital municipal infrastructure system. The Director of Public Works oversees three interrelated divisions such as Engineering Services, Operations and Maintenance, and Administration. 


The Engineering Division is responsible for the design, coordination and construction of capital projects located within the public right-of-way. This Division reviews conditions and inspects development-related projects to ensure utilization of sound engineering principles. This Division provides a safe and efficient network to accommodate the simultaneous movement of vehicles, pedestrians and bicycles throughout the City. This Division also monitors the City’s implementation and compliance of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES).


The Operations Division is responsible for the care, maintenance, repair and alteration of the City’s municipal facilities, parks, athletic fields, parkway trees, streets, sidewalks, vehicles and equipment. This Division is responsible for signage, pavement markings and striping, street sweeping, graffiti and materials abatement, tree trimming, street and sidewalk maintenance, right of way landscaping, solid waste, hazardous waste and recycling.


The Administration Division is responsible for the overall direction and coordination of the Department. Administrative management includes developing the budget, managing personnel, securing and implementing grant programs and overseeing the development and implementation of short and long term goals that improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the Department.
