The Public Works Department operates, maintains, and upgrades the City of Sonoma’s water and transportation systems, parks, and cemeteries. This public infrastructure is the foundation that connects the City’s businesses, communities, and people, driving our economy, improving our quality of life, and ensuring our public health and safety. The Public Works Department is headed by Public Works Director, Mike Berger.
Public Works has three divisions: Parks, Cemeteries & Facilities; Streets; and Water. Each division is responsible for the ongoing activities in its own functional area, although crews may be dispatched at any time to respond to local emergencies, special events, and customer inquiries. The Parks, Cemeteries & Facilities Division is staffed by the Supervisor, one Senior Maintenance Worker, three Maintenance Workers, and two part-time Maintenance Workers. The Streets Division is staffed by the Streets Supervisor and four Maintenance Workers. The Water Division is staffed by the Water Supervisor, Water Conservation Coordinator, and three Maintenance Workers.
The Public Works Department staff are also responsible for: design and construction of the City of Sonoma’s public infrastructure projects; map/plan review and inspection of public improvements constructed by private developments; and protection of water quality in local creeks. Office staff includes a Public Works Administrative & Project Manager, an Environmental Compliance Analyst, and an Administrative Assistant.
