Public Works staff also supervise the maintenance and improvement of all Town-owned facilities, as well as supervise and implement an extensive and ongoing schedule of capital improvements to ensure the long-term sustainability of our public utility systems.

The three divisions of Public Works, including Highway/Equipment, Wastewater, and Water, work throughout the year to ensure a safe and well-maintained public infrastructure to support the needs of the Middlebury community.
