Frank Baugh, Director Public Works
Public Works operates and maintains the city's storm/sewer collection system and storm water collection system. This includes preventive and emergency maintenance, line replacement, line extensions and connections. To reduce the risk of flooding and help control pollution in your community, do not place leaves or grass clippings into open drainage systems or place any debris in a location that would impede the flow of water into the underground systems or ditches.
