The Public Works Department is comprised of two divisions: Maintenance and Operations. These divisions work together to enhance and maintain public parks, streets and facilities. Graffiti removal, street sweeping, and tree care are part of a beautiful Escondido. The Department also maintains an active forum encouraging community involvement in recycling and composting education.
