The goal of the Public Works Department is to effectively deliver quality services to enhance the living and working environment of the community as well as to maintain a reputation for reliability. Residents and businesses who advise us of maintenance needs and situations will help us do our job more effectively and efficiently. With patience and good communication between residents and the department, there is no doubt that the high standards that have been set will continue to improve for years to come.
