The Public Works Department is one of the primary operating arms of the municipality. The personnel in this division are the ones you will most likely see on your roads. Working from our two garages, the municipality maintains for 291.8 km of roads. Of these roads 116.7 km are hot mix or asphalt, 63.2 km are surface treatment and 111.9 km are gravel surface.  This work includes everything from patching and filling potholes, grading, cutting grass along roadside ditches, performing road side tree maintenance, rebuilding roadways, bridge construction and maintenance.

We will remove or trim trees from road allowances that are dead, diseased or dying. Occasionally, we will remove a healthy tree along a roadside if it presents a danger to the traveling public because of its proximity to the travel portion of the road.
