The Public Works Department is composed of the following areas:
  • Capital Maintenance Building Improvements: In 2007 the City approved an 18-year Capital Maintenance Building Plan that includes short and long-term building and facility improvements. Improvements are included with the Capital Improvement Program (CIP) and adopted by the City Council as part of the Annual Budget.
  • Central Garage Maintenance: The primary function of the Central Garage is to provide ongoing maintenance to all the City's fleet vehicles including plows and dump trucks, mowers, street sweepers and asphalt patch trucks, police squads, fire engines, and staff vehicles.  The Central Garage also services minor equipment such as chainsaws and weed-whips, trailers, pumps, and generators. 

    The Central Garage acts as a central support hub and fueling station for all of the City's parks, trails, streets, and utility maintenance crews as well as working in conjunction with the Fiscal and Support Services Department to ensure all City departments are provided detailed billing each month, and that vehicles are retired and replaced on a consistent and cost-effective schedule.  

    Central Garage Goals: 
    • Perform routine and preventive maintenance for the City's vehicles and capital equipment.
    • Complete an average of 1,700 maintenance and repair orders annually.
    • Replacement of City vehicles and equipment as scheduled.
    • Administration of Central Garage functions including replacement, repair and maintenance.
    • Continue to provide departments with monthly detailed billings and cost accounting for all operating costs.
  • Engineering
  • Forestry 
  • Park/Trail Maintenance 
  • Public Utilities 
  • Street Maintenance
Our responsibilities to residents and visitors include providing for the maintenance and operations of 120 miles of City streets, 522 acres of parks and other natural areas, 47 miles of sidewalks, 21 miles of multi-use trails and municipal-owned buildings and ground, as well as storm drains and all aspects of water and sewer operations.
