Department of Public Works

We are here to serve you...

Whether it’s renting one of the City’s beautiful facilities, purchasing compost, leaf pick up, installing or replacing sidewalks and curbs, planting a new tree in the right-of-way, purchasing a Memorial Brick in memory of a loved one or working in the street - we do it all and are ready to help.

The links on the left will guide you further in the services DPW provides or you may contact us by phone by calling the numbers on the right.

If you have an urgent issue after office hours such as flooding, back-ups, sink holes or main breaks you may contact the Dispatch Office located at 29 Van Rensselaer Street. The number to call for Dispatch is (518) 584-3356.  And remember, in any emergency the first call is always to 911.

We look forward to hearing from you!
