The staff of the Public Works Department fully supports the Town of Hamilton: “We work together to build a community of the highest quality for present and future generations”. We do our part by providing superior public services: by maintaining and improving the condition of our streets, by maintaining and operating all Town controlled traffic signs, and pavement markings, by providing a safe and reliable public water source and by effectively planning and implementing delivery of capital projects.
