What Does Public Works Do?
The Public Works department maintains the infrastructure and provides the services to keep the city running (or driving) smoothly. Much of our work is done on or along the roads in the city: road maintenance, mowing, leaf collection, stormwater systems, traffic control, trash collection, and more. Our department has multiple divisions responsible for different services. You can visit About Us to learn more about what different teams in the Public Works department do or Services to see the specific we provide and the infrastructure we maintain.
