Streets, Water, Sewer, Stormwater, Motor Pool and City Beautification maintenance programs make up the department with each responsible for their own infrastructure system.

Lead and Drinking Water - Free test kits available

The main source of lead in drinking water is typically from household plumbing or components associated with service lines. We offer free lead testing to our water customers.
