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 six separate divisions with three different dedicated funds:  Street Fund, Water Fund and Wastewater Fund.  Revenues from individual dedicated funds cannot be co-mingled, and joint services between funds must be tracked and charged for appropriate reimbursement.  Within the Department, administrative and engineering services are split proportionally among the funds.
