The Public Works Department is composed of nine (9) divisions: Engineering, Facilities Maintenance, Fleet Maintenance, Streets, Cemetery, Sanitation, Water, Florence Wastewater and North Florence Wastewater.
The department’s responsibilities include Public Works engineering, building and custodial maintenance, refuse collection and disposal, street maintenance, vehicle and equipment maintenance, water supply, water distribution, wastewater collection and treatment, cemetery operations, transportation, engineering, and development reviews.
Our field staff works in harsh conditions such as the summer heat, monsoon thunderstorms, and cold in the winter. They are some of the first to be called out to set up barricades, repair water distribution systems, maintenance of wastewater collection system, and cleaning our street when nature plays havoc on us.
The administrative and technical staff are involved in the construction management and administration of Capital Improvement Projects involving public works infrastructure.
For further information about this department or any questions that you may have, please contact any of our staff.
