Development project review, drainage and storm water services, street maintenance, traffic investigation, and permits for encroachment, street use, and transportation are all a part of this division.
The Facilities, Grounds, and Fleet Division is responsible for the maintenance of city buildings and other properties, as well as any new construction or remodeling of city-owned facilities. In addition, this division purchases and maintains all city vehicles. This division is also responsible for maintaining all city-owned trees and landscaping.
