Department Description 

The department manages 1.2 million square feet of facilities, 631 acres of grounds, 16 ball diamonds, 4 ice rinks, 7.5 miles of paved trail and various playgrounds, pavilions and other properties. Our department focuses on proactive, preventive, and predictive maintenance with the goal of preserving and extending the useful life of facility and grounds assets. 

Our success lies directly with our staff. Our highly qualified technicians cover each of the major maintenance disciplines, including HVAC, electrical, plumbing, carpentry and grounds maintenance with a sense of ownership. Their productivity level is high and much work is completed in-house. This staff, balanced with outside contractors, allow us to keep expenses lower than peer and industry averages.
