Public Works, Parks & Streets
- The Department of Public Works, Buildings Division’s personnel continues to accept the added responsibility to their ever changing work environment. This dedication and collaboration with a host of many, has helped to improve and modernize our City Hall facility. The aggressive work of the Brown administration to implement a strategy to upgrade and restore the electrical, plumbing, and mechanical components to today’s standards continues to be a priority. These capital improvements will result in an immediate savings of gas and electric and a more pleasant work environment.
