Drainage Maintenance cleans, restores, and reshapes roadside ditches, stormwater holding ponds, and damaged drainage structures. We perform weed and brush control along major canals and stormwater facilities; we also dredge and stabilize ditches and ponds. We often maintain roadside ditches upon request from citizens.
Right of Way Maintenance consists of mowing public ROWs; performing litter control along public ROWs; edging sidewalks within school zones; and trimming overhanging limbs and shrubs along public streets. Currently, we mow public ROWs up to four times per mowing season.
The Public Works Department provides any infrastructure services to the community which are (a) not directly reflected on citizens' utility bills and (b) not part of the public safety and transportation network (such as the Police Department and StarMetro, respectively).
This division, based in City Hall, manages the overall department and provides support services to the individual divisions. All administrative activities for the entire department are channeled through and coordinated by this unit.
