Public Works Department

Water Treatment PlantThe department's employees are responsible for providing the community with water, wastewater systems, as well as maintaining approximately 175 miles of streets and right-of-ways, and the surface and subsurface storm drain systems.

Our Engineering Division helps to create the orderly development of our community by ensuring that private and public development comply with adopted facility plans and development standards.

Our divisions are unique but share one goal - to allow people to live together in a healthy, environmentally-safe manner.
