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 area. 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.

The Public Works division encompasses six lines of business: Administration, Development, Engineering, Environmental Health, Road and Bridge Maintenance and Facilities Management.

Major responsibilities include project engineering and construction administration, building maintenance and repair, road and bridge repair, snow removal, planning, building permits, code enforcement, animal control, nuisance abatement, stormwater and environmental services including food inspection and sanitary sewer operation.
