The Director of Public Works leads three interrelated divisions: Engineering, Landscape/Building Maintenance, and Right of Way.

The Engineering Division is the foundation of a modern Public Works department and is responsible for assisting the other two divisions with project management and technical skills. The engineering team determines which studies are required to inform the department on deficiencies, regulatory requirements, compliance, cost effectiveness, efficient approaches, and strategic plans. These activities inform executive management and City Council in determining project priority.

The Landscape and Building Maintenance (LBM) Division is one part of Public Works' Operations at Corporate Yard. It is responsible for the maintenance and repair of the municipal facilities, parks, and athletic fields. LBM also provides landscaping for Carson by tree trimming, right of way maintenance, median maintenance, and parkway trees. These services enable the safe use of public spaces, enhance the cleanliness of the city, and provide greenery to increase attractiveness of the public right of way.

The Right of Way (ROW) Division is the other part of Public Works' Operations at Corporate Yard. It maintains infrastructure and street maintenance within the public right of way to ensure public safety. It is responsible for signage, pavement markings, striping, street sweeping, materials abatement, and construction. It also works with waste management including demolition waste diversion, used oil, solid waste, and electronic recycling management. The assets of the division include warehouse inventory, fleet vehicles, and equipment.
