The mission of the Public Works Department is to be the innovative leader in the solid waste, streets, drainage, water, sewer collection and wastewater industries; using the concept of continuous improvement; to be stewards over the most vital of all natural resources; and to empower our employees to meet our customer needs by providing a high level of services in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
The Public Works Department is a service and maintenance department whose activities maintain the City’s transportation network and stewards the City’s environmental assets through water delivery and wastewater and surface water collection and reclamation through treatment, and sound disposal and reuse of solid waste. The department also provides street sweeping, street lighting, and graffiti abatement services.
