Just about everywhere you turn or look, the Department of Public Works connects with you in some way. Whether it's over the 1,200 miles of roads and 136 bridges you drive on, the 171 parks you play and relax in, the solid waste and recycling removed from 115,000 households on a weekly basis, the permit approvals for contractors working in the public right of way and public land, or for the support provided to the various City departments, authorities and events, the Department of Public Works is involved.
Our reach and challenges are broad, but our employees are committed to doing the job well. Help us do our job better by putting litter in its proper place and recycling as often as possible. Let us know how we are doing, good or bad, by calling 311.
Enjoy this wonderful city that is growing in population and diversity and all that it has to offer.
