I have the privilege of working with incredibly dedicated and hard-working professionals who are responsible for providing water, wastewater, and stormwater services to our community. Our Department is also responsible for the maintenance of the City's streetlights, traffic signals, vehicles and buses. No matter how difficult, challenging or unpleasant the task, the employees of Municipal Services strive to do whatever it takes to get the job done in a cost-effective and timely manner. It's a real pleasure to be a part of such a fine team.
