Public Works

Welcome to the award-winning Jackson County Public Works Department!

It's our job to care for your county home like you care for your personal home. We repair and maintain; we make sure businesses and citizens honor the codes; we cut back growth, clear unsightly weeds and plow the snow in the unincorporated areas in which the County has possession and control. We take care of your county government buildings, and plan for future growth.

We're a "hands-on" department that takes pride in giving you, the citizen, a great place to live and work.
