What does public works do?

The Public Works Department manages the maintenance, rehabilitation, cleaning, and improvement of all Town-owned buildings, streets, and stormwater facilities.  They also maintain, water, mow, and clean the grass and other facilities at Mountain Meadow Recreation Complex and Woodland Lake Park.  Last (but not least!), they’re responsible for snow removal from streets within the incorporated Town limits.

If you see them hard at work on the side of the road, be sure to wave hello – but please, be careful as you drive by!

The Public Works office also processes right-of-way permit applications; if a project near your home or place of business will involve the Town’s right-of-way area (usually the strip of land right next to a Town-owned road), you’ll need to get one of these permits before you begin work.  Please contact our office for more information!

Snowplow Information

The plowing schedule is prioritized on a “greatest impact” basis. The streets are plowed in the following order:

  • Arterial streets
  • School bus routes
  • Major collectors
  • Minor collectors
  • Residential streets
  • All remaining streets

This allows some mobility within the community and keeps emergency service access as open as possible.

The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) is responsible for snow removal along the entire length of Highway 260, including the area within the Town limits.

Navajo County is responsible for plowing all roads outside the incorporated Town limits, except for the roads that are under the maintenance jurisdiction of the State.  If you aren’t sure whether or not your street is within the Town limits, please call us and ask!  Or, if you already know that you live outside the limits, you can contact the Navajo County Road Yard at: (928) 532-6080.
