DescriptionThis course relates to the delivery of services that improve the quality of life within our communities. Public Works operations are a critical provider of the public services that affect the health, safety, enjoyment, and prosperity of our residents. We generally do this by providing services relating to water/sewer, streets, parks/facilities, and the environment. The course identifies the equipment and personnel resources needed to carry out these functions in an effective and efficient way. Discussions will include factors that should be considered when making choices relating to: preventative vs. reconstruction of infrastructure, rent vs. purchasing of equipment, and contracting vs. in-house use of personnel to provide services.
