What do you enjoy most about leading your department?
Itís the people that make this a great place to work! I enjoy working with a dedicated team that takes great pride in providing high quality services. From the streets and sidewalks, to the water that comes from the tap or the construction of new infrastructure, Public Works provides subtle but essential services for our community. Our team is passionate and works hard to build relationships that have a positive difference in the community.
