Public Works Department


The Construction/Maintenance Division of the Public Works Department provides essential services to City of Huntsville residents in a safe, efficient, prompt, and cost-effective manner.  We are responsible for maintaining the efficient flow of water throughout the city to prevent flooding, erosion, and other property damage.  Through our dedicated employees, we seek to maintain the safe riding quality of Huntsville’s streets for generations to come.  The Construction/Maintenance Division strives to design, build, maintain, and operate public infrastructure in such a manner as to support and enhance the quality of life for Huntsville’s residents.


The Sanitation Division is charged with the responsibility of providing garbage collection to residential and commercial solid waste customers. It is also responsible for the collection of trash and yard waste as well as bulky waste for Huntsville’s residential solid waste customers.


The Construction Division is staffed with heavy equipment operators, skilled workers and truck drivers. It demolishes old and vacant buildings and installs new roads and parking areas that include small and large drainage projects. The division is also involved in large clearing projects that involve excavation and hauling dirt and rock for future developments. We assist in the site work preparation for our high-attraction areas within the city, including renovations and additions at Big Spring Park, the cross-country course and sand volleyball courts at John Hunt Park and the Orion Amphitheater. We exercise policies and procedures that effectively and efficiently serve the public needs.
