Public Works

The Department of Public Works is a team of dedicated professionals who provide responsive and essential services which are necessary to sustain the public infrastructure. They are responsible for street maintenance, drainage, snow removal, traffic signals, street signs, fleet maintenance, refuse & recycling, water treatment, municipal parking, water and sewer lines, and facility maintenance for all municipal buildings. The Department maintains a vital role in preserving Staunton's past, providing for its present needs, and ensuring its future. Public Works is the City's largest operational department and oversees the largest budget.

Restoration of service following a cut-off for non-payment is handled at the  Public Works office. The office is located off Craigmont Drive in the northwest part of the city. Go west on Churchville Avenue and at the top of the hill turn right on Englewood Drive, then left on Craigmont Dr. Follow the signs. Customer service hours are 8:00 am-4:30 pm, Monday through Friday.

You may contact Public Works at 332-3860 for new information about new water and sewer service, transferring accounts, late payment notices and deposits that may be required.
