The Department of Public Services is the second largest Department in the City. It is responsible for what are often referred to as the "meat and potatoes" of City Government. This includes many of the basic services that, if done correctly, our residents take for granted. This includes Roads and Roadways; Watermains and Sanitary Sewers; Rubbish Removal and Recycling.
In addition, the DPS also maintains many of the City's public buildings, two historic cemeteries, and reviews, coordinates and inspects the private site plans that are built throughout the City.
The Department is staffed with graduate engineers and highly skilled technicians and inspectors as well as equipment operators and various support staff. Our goal is to provide our service to the community in a professional and competent manner. Our biggest compliment is to have our residents just "assume and expect" it will get done without having to complain. We are proud of our City and will constantly strive to improve and keep it a model of beauty and efficiency.
