Welcome to the City of Morristown’s Public Works Department web site. First let me say that it is an honor and a privilege to serve the community of Morristown. The Public Works Department serves the community in several areas that you are accustomed to seeing. These areas are garbage collection, curb side recycling, brush collection, bulk trash collection and the never ending street repairs, just to name a few. However, there are also areas that are not as visible that you may not know about. These include maintaining traffic signals, maintaining fire trucks, police vehicles and all vehicles and equipment that the City owns, traffic signs, pavement markings and the mowing of rights of way, the maintenance and repair of the storm water infrastructure and maintaining the communication equipment for Public Safety along with the maintenance of all city owned buildings. Public Works crews are often called out in the middle of the night to clean up damage from severe storms. They also run the snow plows and salt trucks during snow events. Our Engineering Division reviews plans of new developments and inspects construction work to ensure the integrity of the infrastructure. The Engineering Division monitors and inspects construction projects and road improvement projects that the City undertakes. This just names a few of the things that we do.
Public Works employs sixty-four people working in fifteen divisions with an annual budget of $10.5 million. The men and women of Public Works consider it an honor to serve our community. Thank you for allowing us to serve you.
I invite you to learn more about the Public Works Department and the services we provide for you.
