    The Public Works Department is organized into 7 sub-departments which address its primary responsibilities: Water, Sewer, Streets, Drainage, Maintenance, Beautification, and Central Shop.

    By providing planning, resource coordination, leadership, and financial management services, our Public Works Administrative Team works to accomplish the overall mission of our department.

    Our department is made up of 42 employees who maintain 186 miles of streets in addition to 8,400 water and sewer customers. Employees must be available 24 hours every day to deal with unexpected problems. The Public Works Department also has the responsibility for hurricane preparedness, pre-storm preparations, and post-event cleanup.
