City Hall - What to Know Before You Visit

The Public Works Department is now open for limited hours, from 10 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. daily. Appointments can be made outside of these times, during regularly scheduled staff hours.

Face masks are required inside City Hall. It is highly encouraged to call ahead to schedule a time to meet with staff to ensure availability. Occupancy in the Community Development/Public Works reception area is currently limited to two people or one family, to ensure proper physical distancing can be met.


The goal of the Public Works Department is to provide citizens with the best quality product and service possible and do it at a fair and reasonable cost. We are committed to providing service beyond what is considered the normal standard of the industry in the delivery of public improvement projects, drinking water quality, wastewater treatment, maintenance operations, and all other services.
