Public Works


The Public Works Operations Department operates out of the City Yard located at 521 North Langstaff. The Department provides a broad base of services through its six divisions: Administration, Streets, Parks and Streetscape, Lake Operations, Facilities, and Fleet. Each staff member is assigned to a specific division and corresponding supervisor. However, the entire staff will perform work for a single division when necessary such as clean-up after a major storm event, or will work collectively for special events such as Winterfest or 4th of July.

The Public Works Operations Department maintains the City's: buildings and facilities, parks, medians, streets and signage, curb and gutters, sidewalks, trees in the right-of-way, catch basins and miscellaneous drainage facilities, fleet and equipment. The Public Works Operations Department responds to minor and major emergency situations, including severe storms, and provides 24/7 emergency response staff.
