About Us

Month in Photos

Take a look at what some of the employees at Public Works have been doing throughout the community:

Featured Projects

Annual Street Resurfacing

The City maintains approximately 560 paved lane miles of streets, a length which grows annually with the build-out of new subdivisions. Street conditions are surveyed annually by an outside consultant using a vehicle with high-tech equipment including lasers, cameras, computers and other measuring devices.

New Sidewalk Program

Every year, the Board of Commissioners approve approximately $400,000 - $500,000 annually, allowing construction of approximately 1 mile of new sidewalk. After evaluation all new sidewalk requests, the Public Works department will construct these sidewalks, as funds permit.
