Get to Know Us

When the town was incorporated in 1994, it had 1,800 residents. Today our population is more than more than 30,000. The 26 employees in Public Works are committed to delivering high-quality projects and services to support a great quality of life and managed growth.  We use available resources:  technology, processes, collaborative partnerships, finances and people. We also actively seek input from elected officials, the public, employees and other service providers to improve all aspects of Public Works.
