The Public Works Department is responsible for the construction of most public improvement projects within the City. Our goal is to produce high quality projects, on schedule and within budget. While doing this, we must also maintain cooperative working relationships with the public, City Council, the administration, other City divisions, consulting engineers, utility company representatives, contractors, developers, suppliers and federal, state and municipal agencies.
