Mission Statement

The Department of Public Works (DPW) provides professional quality maintenance, repair and construction services while maintaining 130 miles of streets, parks, playgrounds, common areas and cemetery.  The DPW is also responsible for the ongoing maintenance of water mains, sewer mains, pumping stations and city vehicles and pieces of equipment.

Additionally, the DPW is responsible for rapid response to all snow, ice and other inclement weather emergencies and conditions.  The DPW enforces water, sewer and snow by-laws, grants petitions for location of utilities, and maintains engineering records and Town maps.  Lastly, we play a significant role in the daily operation of other city departments in responding to requests for service.  The Department budget is divided into four divisions; Public Works (General), Cemetery, Water and Sewer.
