When major emergencies occur you usually think of the Police and Fire Departments, but Public Works plays a major roll in responding to emergencies providing assistance in major storms like hurricanes, tornadoes, ice storms and floods. Although response to these emergencies may last for hours or even days, the clean up in the aftermath may take weeks to complete.
Public Works AdministrationPublic Works Administration is the major receiving office for all of the departments under Public Works. All calls and requests for service are received through this office and dispatched to the proper department and a work order is issued and tracked for service. The Public Works Department issues over six thousand work order requests per year.
