Public Works Administration


As the office of the Director of Public Works, this division is responsible for coordinating all the activities of the other eight divisions within the Public Works Department in providing services and giving support to other departments within the city. Compilation of various reports and studies are undertaken which are used to assist the City Manager, Mayor, and Board of Aldermen concerning budgeting and policy issues relating to Public Works matters. We also work with other agencies, non-profits, and special event groups to help improve the quality of life within the community. We are confident you will find a friendly, willingness to serve and assist attitude when contacting our office and look forward to working with you in gaining access to all of the services the City of New Bern provides.
