The Public Works Department consists of several divisions responsible for operating and maintaining City infrastructure and providing other services to the community. The infrastructure includes streets, parks, trails, sidewalks, portable water supply, treatment and distribution, sanitary sewer collection, storm water treatment and conveyance, and public natural areas.  Services include recreation, engineering, street sweeping, snow and ice control, fleet maintenance, etc. The department functions on a pool concept to accomplish public works initiatives. This includes sharing maintenance operators and equipment across divisions based on departmental priorities.  Public Works Administration plans and manages programs; develops policies, procedures and priorities; and is responsible for overall department operations.

  • A traffic signal is out
  • Street sign is down, damaged or missing
  • A pothole needs to be fixed
  • Rainwater drainage problems

  • Sidewalk is in need of repair
  • Trees in the boulevard need trimming
