Staff with the Department of Public Works restores, protects and improves our natural and historic resources, adopts and enforces codes and regulations, and builds and maintains the infrastructure needed for County government employees to serve the community. 

Our staff members address the issues that every citizen may encounter . . .  from trash disposal to mosquito control to tall grass to graffiti to water pollution.  We strive to improve the living conditions of our community.  View a list of common community concerns for who to call and additional information.

Celebrate the Frederick Douglass Bicentennial at Lucasville School

Working with the Frederick Douglass Family Initiative, we are celebrating the life and work of Frederick Douglass on the week of his 200th birthday! Join the Ebenezer Men’s Choir to kick off the celebration, then read-aloud sessions of passages from the Narrative and the Life of Frederick Douglass and learn about the One Million Abolitionists project. We will be giving away one hardback, special edition book to each family in attendance, while supplies last! The event runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.  It is free, but donations to support historic preservation are welcome.  Lucasville will also be open every Saturday and Sunday in February from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. with special programs to celebrate African-American History Month.  Lucasville School, Manassas, VA 703-367-7872.
