Mission: To be responsive to our customers, to do our best work, and to build foundations for the future, so that the community reaps the rewards.
The Department of Public Works is composed of three separate divisions: Street Fund, Water Fund and Wastewater Fund. Each Division possesses its own specific revenue source and budgeted expenditures. Revenues cannot be co-mingled, and joint services must be tracked and charged for appropriate reimbursement. Within the Department, administrative and technical support services are split proportionally among the funds.
The City of The Dalles, Oregon, is situated in the north-central part of the state on the Columbia River, the nation's second largest river. It is the county seat and the largest community in Wasco County. The Dalles is one of Oregon's most historical cities and was known earlier in its history as the town at the end of the Oregon Trail. The city was first incorporated by the Oregon Territorial Government in 1857 as “Dalles City” and was made the county seat shortly thereafter.
