Public Works

The Public Works Department is responsible for maintaining and updating existing public infrastructure, and planning for the future to ensure generations to come have access to a safe, clean place to live. "Public Works" is an umbrella term that refers to the work of building and maintaining public assets such as roads, bridges, cemeteries, water and stormwater utilities, carried out by the government for the community. The utilities and services provided by the Public Works department touch every resident of and visitor to Monroe every day, and our staff is committed to ensuring these services operate efficiently and transparently now and into the future.

As the seasons change, so does the work that we do. As fall approaches and street sweeping gives way to leaf pickup and then snow removal, know that our staff is working hard to keep Monroe looking and operating at its best.
