What We Do

The Public Works & Utilities Department operates and maintains nearly all of the City’s infrastructure while also providing many of the City services that residents use on a daily basis.


As the City’s largest department, the Public Works and Utilities Department operates and maintains:

  • The City’s regional potable water system
  • The sanitary and storm sewer systems
  • The wastewater treatment and water recycling plant
  • The collection of garbage and recyclables from residents and businesses through curbside collection and the Harvest Drive Public Drop-Off Center

Public Works accomplishes these responsibilities all while also ensuring that the city complies with all regulatory requirements and helping to advance the city’s sustainability goals. Additional responsibilities include:

  • The Public Works also designs and oversees construction of many of the City’s road through our Engineering Division.
  • The Public Works Conservation and Education Division provides residents and businesses with information, motivation and tools to conserve the natural resources managed by the Public Works and Utilities Department. 

The Department staff takes great pride in providing services to our community in an efficient and cost-effective manner while also providing excellent customer service.
