Our Mission

It is the mission of the Division of Public Works to deliver high quality, cost-effective, efficient and safe services as we build, maintain and operate the physical facilities that support and enhance the lives of Gary citizens, businesses and visitors.

Who We Are

The Division of Public Works is comprised of departments that function collectively to maintain and operate the City’s infrastructure. Our staff works hard to make your commute safe and efficient, your neighborhood more attractive, your streets and sidewalks clean and well-maintained, among other services. Our responsibilities include road maintenance and repair, design and construction management of streets, bridges, and public buildings and operations offices, snow removal, lawn maintenance, tree cutting, cleanup of illegal dump sites, and protection of our urban environment through year-round clean-up of debris. We are committed to our mission and to addressing the concerns of our citizens.
