Department of Public Works

The Department of Public Works headquarters is located in the same block as the Borough Hall, with access from Pocono Road. The facilities include the Borough Garage and storage area as well as an office for the director, a meeting room and personnel rooms. The twelve bays in the garage are used to capacity by the Department’s vehicles of various sizes and types. Vehicles and other equipment are replaced in accordance with a schedule reflected in the Capital Improvement Program.  Most of the normal Borough maintenance (streets, parks, lakes, dams, buildings and grounds) and some construction of new facilities are done by the Department of Public Works (DPW). Other responsibilities include the public water, sanitary sewerage and storm drainage systems, and the Recycling Center (behind the Borough Garage). The Department’s buildings and equipment are generally adequate for the purposes and no major expansions are expected.
