We Are Public Works
The Public Works Agency is responsible for building and maintaining all public streets, storm drains, sewers, and water facilities. In addition, we coordinate the collection and recycling of refuse, sweep public streets, landscape the public right-of-way, trim trees, and remove graffiti. We ensure that the community enjoys high quality drinking water and is able to travel around the City efficiently through the use of our state-of-the-art traffic management system. We also work with neighborhood associations to resolve speeding, parking, and traffic problems and with developers to ensure that City development standards are met.
Please explore our site and learn more about the resources, services and programs that our Agency has to offer. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, comments or inquiries.
