Director of Public Services
Doug Stone

Public Works is the Department that makes a city work. The next time you enjoy one of our beautiful parks take time to observe the results of the efforts of our Public Works Department. Whether you choose to walk, ride your bike, or drive, it's the efforts of the Public Works department that makes it possible.

  • The streets are cleaned and maintained by the Public Works Department.
  • The Traffic Control devices that allow us to safely navigate the streets are installed and maintained by the Public Works Department.
  • The manicured trees and grass cultivated by our Public Works Department.

The Public Works Department is the lead player in combating storms that could bring our city to its knees. Nobody needs to be reminded how important snow and ice removal is in the winter. Due to the storm sewers and flood control we are privileged to rarely have to think of the devastation that could be caused by water.
