The Public Works Department consists of seven (7) Divisions. The divisions are Water, Streets, Sewers, Storm Drains, Sanitation, Equipment Maintenance and Wastewater Treatment.

All Divisions are located at the City Corporation Yard on Aviator Drive.

Water Division

With few exceptions (problematic locations, incorrect/inaccurate computer inputs etc.), the Water Division has fulfilled the mandate set by Assembly Bill No. 2572 for installation of water meters in all residences built 1992 and after. Residents may still observe staff members in their neighborhoods as follow up procedures are required in some instances.

The Water Division will now continue working towards implementing a second phase of meter installation by surveying various sections of town, collecting pertinent information from addresses in these areas. Some locations are "meter ready" while the remainder will require substantial improvements.

The City has set up a Water Meter Hotline for any questions regarding Water Meter installation. Please leave your name, phone number and your concerns and your questions will be answered as soon as possible. The phone number is 357-6370.

Mission Statement
To provide a comprehensive Equipment Maintenance program which responsively fulfills the vehicle and equipment needs of the City through cost-effective and dedicated personal service.

To do so we constantly evaluate our current operation and the way we are doing business. We are continually exploring ways to improve the overall effectiveness of what we produce. We are creative, adaptive and not fearful of change. We value each employee’s role to look for the small incremental improvements which contribute to this process. This teamwork approach produces significant tangible improvement for the entire operation.

Equipment Maintenance procures materials and repair parts, maintains, and repairs all City vehicles and equipment. Maintenance is performed on a diverse 237 unit fleet ranging from patrol cars to fire trucks to pickups, staff cars, large trucks, construction vehicles, mowers and small gas powered construction equipment.

Additionally, Equipment Maintenance is responsible for Equipment fueling service, for maintinging emergency generators, disposal of vehicles at the endof econoimc life cycles, providing welding, project deisgn, and metal fabrication service to the City's customers.

Wasp Problems

Some areas in the City have been plagued by paper wasps. Although these wasps are beneficial to the agricultural community, they are a nuisance to a neighborhood. Below are some links that contain some information on the wasps and ways to eradicate them. The City has taken a pro-active stance by placing some homemade wasp traps in the landscaped areas of the Las Casas subdivision.
