Just like in any business, success for Public Works Department service areas comes as a result of planning. We've developed our services summaries to provide a written description of the operations we perform to achieve our goal of long-term, cost-effective operation of the City’s infrastructure. Below you will find links to the service summaries for the work the Public Works Department performs in eleven topic areas. They explain our basic "business product" , our stakeholders and partners, and our plans for the near term, as well as a look to the future for challenges on the horizon–whether they be regulatory requirements, system growth or revenue constraints.

The business plan is regularly reviewed and updated to aid in budget planning for the next fiscal year. City staff involved in the particular "business" activity meet to discuss what challenges have been met, any changes in the ones still to be addressed, and any new ones facing the "business." Costs associated with these issues are incorporated into a financial plan. Together the business plan and the financial plan help position the "business" to meet the needs of a growing community within the constraints of restricted revenue sources.

If you have questions or comments, please contact Public Works at 541-766-6916.
