Public Works and Engineering


The Department of Public Works and Engineering strives to provide cost-effective and responsive municipal services to the public within the policies, objectives and budget outlined by City Council. The Department delivers programs in two areas - the Works Division, and the Engineering Division.

The Works Division carries out the operations and maintenance programs which cover the delivery of basic municipal services, such as the provision of piped or trucked sewer and water services to all residents, the provision of garbage collection, the maintenance and repair of the City's roadways and sidewalks and the provision of a vehicle service to all City departments.

The Engineering Division delivers and administers the City's capital works programs, which include major construction under the water and sanitation program (such as water treatment and sewage disposal facilities), the roads and sidewalks program (new road construction, paving and concrete work), the land development program and the major and minor capital works for other City departments.
