Public Works Department

The Public Works Department is responsible for maintaining and improving 67.6 miles of Village roadways and 34 miles of paved bike lanes, including the multi-purpose Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail. The department is tasked with maintaining 138 miles of Village and Federal rights-of-way. These responsibilities include, but are not limited to, mowing, tree trimming, weed and litter removal, street sign improvements, pothole repair and minor roadway shoulder improvements.

Additional responsibilities include maintaining and improving Village owned buildings, public parks and conservation lands, traffic signals, street signage and stormwater drainage structures. Capital Improvement projects (not related to wastewater) are also implemented by the Public Works Department.

The Public Works Department receives services requests from residents and all Village departments and is an integral part of the Emergency Operations Center.  The department’s staff regularly collaborates with the Village’s solid waste contractor, acts as liaison to the Water Quality Committee, and addresses stormwater related issues.
