Public Works

The Public Works Department serves the community by maintaining and operating public facilities. The Public Works Department responsibilities range from streets and storm drains to watershed management and solid waste. Sidewalks, pavement, street trees, storm drains, bridges, public restrooms, public buildings and many other public facilities are all maintained and operated by the Department of Public Works.

In a given day, Public Works staff can be seen trimming trees, repairing sidewalks, and even assisting with City sponsored events such as the Avocado Festival. The Public Works Department also reviews and approves portions of private development projects as well as manages all capital improvement projects.
