Public Works

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