Due to legal restrictions, the Public Works complex located at 400 Dice Street is now closed to the public. Because of heavy motorized equipment entering and leaving the complex, this area is a safety hazard to Morristown citizens. We want to keep our citizens safe, so we ask that you please stay off of the premises for your own protection. If you have need to speak with anyone from Public Works, please call the office at (423) 585-4658.
The Morristown Public Works Department day to day activities are supported by fifteen divisions and is headed up by a Public Works Director and 3 Superintendents. The department employs 64 persons and has more than 40 vehicles and pieces of equipment to carry out its services.
