Public WorksThe Public Works Department encompasses two divisions. These divisions are Streets Division and Water & Sewer Division.
STREETS DIVISION Services offered and operated by the Street Department: Limb Pick-Up Program – Limbs and debris will be picked up at the Citizens request. We ask that you please separate the limbs from other debris such as bricks, tin, leaves and bottles. Service and Maintenance of Traffic Lights & Signs- Residents are welcome to call the office and report a traffic light out or a damaged/missing sign. Overlaying/Paving of City Streets Supervises the overlaying/paving of City Streets. A schedule of all streets needing overlaying or maintenance is submitted each year for approval. These are selected based on traffic volume, condition of surface, and street classification. Street Patching and Pot Hole Patrol All employees of the Street Department are on the lookout for potholes and patching streets throughout the city. Citizens are welcome to call the office and report potholes and areas that may need patching. Rubbish Disposal & Recycling Service, located on Beasley Road, is free for the citizens on Gautier. Debris pickup from your home is now being piced up by Waste Pro on a weekly basis, along with household garbage click here ROW Maintenance Schedule-2015 WATER & SEWER DIVISION Services offered & operated by the Water/Sewer Division Water Leaks – The Water Division Crew is maintenance of all water distribution systems in the City. There are sometimes extenuating circumstances that cause this division to prioritize leaks by urgency. (Ex.: a major break of a main line that could cause city residents to be without water for an extended period of time would take precedence over a small leak in the street not affecting the public.) Installation of New Water Service (no existing service) – Residents that request new water or sewer service will need to complete an application for new service at the Public Works Office. Map It! Sewer Maintenance- The Sewer Division maintains the sewer lines for residents of the city. Any sewer odors or problems may be directed to the Utility Department at 497-4283.
