“Our mission is to provide public service at its highest standard of maintenance and construction in the interest of the public” Together we promote integrity through the highest standards of leadership, providing maintenance and infrastructure services and refuse collection; collectively known as Public Works Department. Together we will continue to uphold effective working relationships with the general public.
The City of Pharr, Public Works Department celebrates National Public Works Week Friday, May 17- 23, 2015. There will be special demonstrations from each of our divisions of the Public Works Division including: Drainage, Stormwater Management, Animal Control, Traffic, Transportation, Service Center and the Recycling Center. This event is the first of its kind in the Rio Grande Valley offering guided tours, educational display booths and interactive games which includes special mascot guests.
One of the primary goals of the Public Works Department is to educate the community on the importance of the contribution of public works to our daily lives: planning, building, managing and operating the heart of our local communities and building the quality. We take pride in helping Pharr stay green, clean and beautiful. The last Saturday of each month volunteers and city staff come together for Operation Clean Sweep (OCS), to help to enhance an area of Pharr in an effort to teach others to become self sustaining and take pride in their own community.
