The City of Bandon Public Works and Parks Department
The Public Works Department is responsible for maintenance of City streets and drainage facilities, water distribution system, sewage collection system, and parks and recreation facilities. Street Maintenance involves grading, graveling, pothole patching, shoulder mowing, and sweeping all City streets; maintaining city rights-of-way; and also maintaining and cleaning of all main storm drain lines, catch basins, and drainage ditches. Water System Maintenance involves locating main lines, repair of water distribution lines, periodic main line and fire hydrant flushing, installing and maintaining water meters and ensuring that all work, whether installed by City crews or private contractors, is undertaken in compliance with applicable Health Division regulations. The Public Works Department is also responsible for monthly reading of all water meters for water utility billing. Sewer System Maintenance involves locating sewer laterals, routine inspection of sewer lines, and flushing obstructions from blocked sewer lines. The Department also works closely with contractors to insure proper installation of lines and taps in accordance with DEQ regulations. Park Maintenance includes repair, cleaning, and maintenance of various recreational facilities such as the City Park restrooms and playground equipment, Community Center, City Hall and other building maintenance, removal of downed trees and vegetation, and mowing City property.
The street and drainage maintenance activities of the Department are funded primarily by the General Fund and the State Tax Street Fund. Most major capital improvement projects are funded from the Capital Improvement Fund, the Street SDC Fund, and through grants where available. Water and sewer system activities and water meter reading are funded by the Water Fund and Sewer Fund respectively, with those revenues coming from the sale of water and sewer services to utility customers. Parks and recreation funding is primarily through the General Fund and the Parks & Recreation Fund.
