What's in the Works

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.   

We, as Public Works staff, pledge to continue to build public confidence, conquer all challenges, and demand the best of ourselves. 

We will honor our pledge by empowering all employees to provide information and services that exceed our customers' expectations and make our community the best. 

Public Works pursues excellence and will be recognized as a leader for our innovative strategies and programs.
