Welcome to the City of Columbia Public Works Department! The Public Works staff is dedicated to providing customer-friendly service while maintaining the City’s infrastructure, protecting the public's safety and the environment, and providing transportation opportunities to residents and area businesses. Public Works follows the City of Columbia's Vision, Mission, Core Values, and Strategic Priorities and detailed Strategic Plan to guide our efforts. We are an American Public Works Association (APWA) accredited agency.
Our staff invite you to browse through our web pages to learn about the many services of the Public Works Department. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or suggestions you may have. It is our pleasure to serve the citizens of Columbia, Missouri.
The city of Columbia is seeking residents views on city services via mailed and online surveys. Starting the week of November 16, a random number of homes in Columbia will receive a survey form in the mail. If you receive a survey, we would very much appreciate you taking the time to complete the survey and return it promptly. If you do not receive a survey in the mail, you can still complete the survey on line at www.columbia2015survey.org/ .
Learn more about the survey at:
Every citizen who responds to the survey helps move Columbia forward. Some of the responses provide a report card on City services such as public safety, utilities and other day-to-day operations. Other responses reflect the public's priorities for the future.
