About Public Works
The Public Works Department is dedicated to maintaining and improving the quality of life for Manchester residents by building and maintaining municipal infrastructure, promoting environmental health and safety, managing capital improvement projects, and planning for future needs. The Public Works Department works closely with other city departments in cooperative efforts to meet citizen’s needs.
Our department maintains approximately 65 miles of roadways and associated sidewalks, 11 bridge structures, city facilities excluding those in the Parks Department’s system, and the city’s vehicle fleet. Additional services include snow and ice removal, management of the solid waste contract for trash, recyclables, and yard waste disposal, administration of the residential sewer lateral repair program, and oversee open channel and storm sewer improvements in conjunction with the St. Louis Metropolitan Sewer District.
