As the City’s largest department, the Public Works and Utilities Department operates and maintains nearly all of the City’s infrastructure while also providing many of the City services that residents use on a daily basis.

Who fixes the potholes, removes graffiti, sweeps the streets, keeps the water flowing, collects and treats the sewage, repairs street lights, builds nature trails, maintains the fire engines and police cars, plans and builds streets and  bridges, and empties the garbage and recycle carts? The Public Works and Utilities Department staff works hard to provide these and other essential services to our residents and businesses.
