There are four divisions within the Public Works Department: Administration, Streets, Fleet, and Buildings. The Water Department is an enterprise fund and is budgeted as a separate department.
The Administration oversees all of the divisions, capital improvement projects, street closure permits for maintenance of streets and sidewalks throughout the city, and handles any problems that may arise with other city, county, state, and federal departments.
The Street's Division maintains the streets, travel corridors, and parks for the City. The street crews work tirelessly to ensure that all streets are plowed and safe during the wintertime. During the spring and summer months, this crew uses sweepers to collect trash and debris to keep our City clean. The streets division also maintains City parks, flowers, and banner programs.
The Fleet Maintenance Division maintains and services all City owned vehicles; from street plows to sweepers; to Fire Department, Police Department, County Ambulances, and City buses. Our crew keeps all city vehicles in good repair.
The Building Division is responsible for maintaining all city buildings and ensuring they are clean and in good repair. This crew handles anything from changing a light bulb, repairing a furnace on the blink or a plumbing problem, removing or replacing doors, to building walls.
The Public Works Department takes pride in keeping our City beautiful from season to season by hanging seasonal banners, planting flower baskets in the spring and summertime, and displaying Christmas decorations during the holidays. The full effort from all of our crews in each division conveys the commitment we all have to work as a team and take pride in our City.
