About Public Works

The Dougherty County Public Works Department is comprised of five divisions – Administration, Engineering, Environmental Control, Parks and Gardens, and Vehicle Maintenance. The Public Works director and assistant director oversee construction and drainage crews, road maintenance crews, right-of-way clearing and pipe laying crews, and pump stations. The director also supervises an administrative staff that works to support Public Works and its five divisions.

Public Works clears rights-of-way for road construction; builds and/or installs driveway culverts, catch basins, drainage pipes and manholes; maintains holding pond pump stations; and demolishes and cleans condemned buildings to prepare for new construction. The Public Works director is responsible for coordination of all road construction funded by the One-Percent Sales Tax Program.
