Public Works & Engineering

The Public Works and Engineering Division provides project and program support of activities primarily in the public right-of-way. The projects generally include public infrastructure such as roads, streets, bridges, utility lines and waterways.

Emergency Response

The General Service Department responds to emergencies in the public right-of-way, including damaged infrastructure, road hazards, and support to the Police Department. Our team is often first to respond to storm related emergencies, such as flooded streets and down trees.

Stormwater Program

The primary function of the Stormwater Program is to manage the city's stormwater runoff as a resource through the operation and management of a complex storm drain system as well as low-impact development (LID) techniques. In addition, program staff work to improve stormwater quality by educating the community about the importance of keeping pollutants out of storm drains.

Transportation & Streets Program

The Transportation and Streets Program operates activities related to traffic, road conditions and circulation. Traffic signals, traffic calming, street sweeping and permits are a few of the topics included in this program.
