They are responsible for installing and maintaining pavement markings and street striping, and maintain on-street parking and off-street parking lots.

Water Utility Is responsible to provide our customers with a reliable supply of high quality drinking water now and in the future. The Water Utility serves approximately 80,000 people within a service area of approximately 60 square miles. Our water quality not only meets Federal and State Standards each and every day of the year, but in most cases, contaminant levels fall far below published Primary and Secondary Standards. This means you, as the consumer, are assured of the safest water we can deliver to your tap.
