Public Works

The Public Works Department is here to serve the community by providing airport, street, solid waste, water, wastewater, and stormwater services. It contributes to the health, well-being, and convenience of citizens, visitors, businesses, and industry by operating and maintaining the City’s streets, drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater systems for long-term service. These responsibilities must be managed cost-effectively as budget guidelines allow while remaining sensitive to the needs of the citizens we so proudly serve.
