Department Summary

The Utilities/Public Works Department is a self-supporting enterprise fund, meaning the financial requirements of the department are met through user fees, connection fees, payments from outside entities and other self-generated revenues, rather than local tax revenue.  On January 27, 2009, the Board of Supervisors approved the reorganization of several General Services divisions.  Refuse Collection, Refuse Disposal, Recycling/Litter Control, Composting and Facilities Management now fall under the supervision of the Utilities Director.  Funding for these functions remains in the General Fund (except for Composting, which has always been funded by the Utilities Fund). The department operates nine separate divisions to accommodate the water, sewer and solid waste needs of the County.  Each division is under the direction of a Division Director.
