Public Works is responsible for the preventive and daily maintenance of the City of Clairton which also includes the business district. The main crew consist of 10 full time workers and 5 additional workers for summer help. Many of their duties involve street cleaning, grass cutting, recycling, road repair and snow removal. However during the year, they respond to local emergencies such as clogged sewers, potholes and various other complaints. They also maintain a fleet of vehicles such as dump trucks, street sweepers and various other equipment utilized for all year around preservation.. During the summer peak season, they keep the local gardens, playgrounds, parks, pool area and facilities in beautiful and functional condition. While in the winter, they assure that local roads are plowed and salted during ice storms and snowfalls.. Yet,their primary focus for snow removal is the main roads, secondary roads and then alleys.
