Winter weather, and its impacts on area roadways have hit our city hard; and our crews have continued to work even harder.

The Maintenance & Operations Division is comprised of the Maintenance, Operations, Equipment Rental Division (ERD) and the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) Divisions. Under the direction of the Maintenance and Operations Superintendent Art Garro, the division provides necessary services to internal and external customers alike. 

Maintenance Division

The Maintenance Division is composed of 12 crew members. Our maintenance staff maintain and improve existing infrastructure throughout the city. Some of their more visible responsibilities include street sweeping, painting of street lines and directional arrows, snow and ice control activities, and traffic sign and signal maintenance. Less visible is the work they do to maintain existing and assist with the implementation of new water and sewer lines.

Operations Division

Water and sewer activities are overseen by Operations Supervisor, Garrett Jones. Garrett and two Operations Technicians ensure that water delivery systems, and the water that is delivered is of the highest quality. Operations crew members visit each of the 4 well and 10 booster sites within the city and perform daily operations and water quality testing each of the 365 days of the year.

Equipment Rental Division

Automotive Supervisor, Chris Arvas and five crew members procure and maintain the fleet of city vehicles. During 2018 the ERD staff performed service, maintenance, and repair work on 207 vehicles and various pieces of city owned equipment.

Wastewater Treatment Plant Division

The Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) is overseen by Supervisor Trevor Cook. The WWTP consists of eight crew members that are onsite to operate and maintain the plant and associated facilities seven days a week. During 2018 the plant treated 1,042.8 million gallons of sewage, to be returned safely back to local waterways.

Administration

In addition to M&O Superintendent Art Garro, and the supervisors listed above, support staff include Maintenance and Operations Accountant Ryan Lancaster, and Administrative Specialist Cristin Reisenauer.
