Public Works & Engineering

The Public Works and Engineering Department is responsible for the engineering, permitting, inspection, and scheduling maintenance of Town roads and sidewalks.  The Director is the Town Tree Warden, with several Deputy Wardens.  The Department also manages the contracted trash/recycling program and serves as liaison between residents and the hauler.

The Highway Division performs construction and maintenance on Town roads, sidewalks, and rights of way. During winter months, the Highway Division clears snow from both Town roads and sidewalks around Town buildings and parks.  Each spring, crews perform street sweeping operations. Street sweeping this year will run from Monday, April 3, 2023 to mid-June, weather permitting.  A map of the areas in the order they will be swept is available here.  Residents can assist by sweeping sediment from sidewalks into gutters and moved parked cars.  Please do not discard brush, branches, or yard waste into the street.

The Grounds Division maintains the parks, playgrounds, and open spaces for recreational uses, including clearing a section of the Linear Trail for winter use.

The Sewer Division operates, inspects, and maintains the Wastewater Treatment Plant and the sanitary sewer system.

The  Public Properties division maintains and improves all Town-owned buildings except schools, which are maintained by Cheshire Public Schools.
