About the Department 

The Public Works Department is responsible for construction, maintenance, and repair of the City’s infrastructure systems. Construction and repair responsibilities are scheduled as specific times throughout the year, while maintenance responsibilities are generally conducted on an ongoing basis. Infrastructure may specifically include concrete and asphalt streets, street signage, gutters, curbs, sidewalks, street sweeping, and leaf pickup.

The Public Works Director is responsible for plan review of site plans, special use permits, providing information to residents, developers and anyone else interested in performing work on city streets. We also manage the city’s sewer lateral program. The Public Works Department is responsible for seeking competitive bids on the City Trash Contract every five years. The Public Works Department at the City of Berkeley consists of four divisions (i.e. Streets, Central Garage, Inspections and/or Code Enforcement, including Animal Control and Facilities).
