Division Summary
Services provided by the Division of Public Works are key to the City's system for addressing environmental, public health and local transportation issues. The division provides residents with weekly collection of garbage and trash, maintaining an emphasis on recycling all possible materials to reduce landfill costs from household recyclables at our recycling center.

Public Works manages the maintenance of streets with services such as asphalt paving, traffic engineering, pothole and cut/patch repair, fleet maintenance, construction codes, flood plain management, community services, government buildings, housing codes, parks and recreation, state street aid and storm water management Phase II MS4 to ensure reduction of pollution from urban runoff. Public Works also interacts with the Red Bank Planning Commission and the Red Bank Board of Zoning Appeals.

The Division must be responsive to the increased regulatory demands enforced by TDEC, FEMA, OSHA and the EPA, as well as new technology to improve productivity. The rising costs of essential supplies, such as fuel, asphalt binder and electrical energy greatly impact the Department's ability to meet expense goals.
