Public Works is comprised of two departments, Engineering and Buildings and Grounds. Collectively, our employees carry out our Mission to provide professional engineering support to County departments and management services to all County government properties.
Our Engineering Department staff is responsible for capital contract administration and management of projects. We provide professional engineering services and technical support for construction, renovation, and remodel projects on County properties as well as provide these same services to County Departments. Our engineers assist with the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program by reviewing plans, managing home elevation projects, and serving on the County's Hazard Mitigation Management Team. We provide solid waste management and contract administration related to the Middle Peninsula Landfill and Recycling Facility, perform post-closure care of the County's closed landfill, and perform disaster solid waste management planning. We also perform public water supply sampling at the County's parks in accordance with State Health Department Regulations.
Our Buildings and Grounds Department is responsible for maintenance, general repair, groundskeeping, and custodial care of County properties. We also provide maintenance and inspection services on County vehicles and equipment as well as furnish seasonal mosquito control in Mosquito Control Districts. Our staff is skilled in automotive & equipment repair, carpentry, landscaping, HVAC, masonry, mosquito control, painting, plumbing, and sign making.
