Maintenance Division

Public Works Maintenance Division

This division covers every base — 342 miles of roadways, 492 cul-de-sacs, 78 parks and playgrounds and more than 50 facilities. Why do Civic Plaza, our six fire stations, Creekside Community Center, maintenance buildings, park shelters, the Public Health Center and the nine-acre cemetery look so good? It's the work of Maintenance.
