Public Works

The Public Works Department provides a wide spectrum of services to both external and internal customers. While most people readily identify Public Works with streets, parks and grounds maintenance, the nature of our community requires that we maintain beach access areas, dune crossovers, sidewalks and bikeways which see heavy use from both year-round and seasonal residents and tourists.
