Public Works Projects
The Public Works Department conducts an ongoing program of replacing damaged sidewalks, curbs, and gutters; performs patching and crack-sealing on City streets, trims trees, maintains the City parks, sewer collection and treatment system, water storage and distribution system, storm drain system, City fleet and equipment, and performs the on-going maintenance on the City facilities inclusive of the emergency standby power systems.
The Public Works Department also works with State and Federal Agencies to maintain permits and meet the mandated guidelines. The City appreciates your patience and understanding for any inconveniences these projects may cause.
