About Public Works

Public Works maintains over 1,000 miles of roadways across a vast, spectacular landscape in northern Arizona. In addition to Engineering and Road Maintenance divisions, the department also administers the County’s Flood Control District and provides Fleet Services to all County departments.

With a budget exceeding $30 million, Public Works is funded by gas tax revenue and, importantly, a locally controlled sales tax dedicated solely to road maintenance services and capital projects. Sixty-five percent of the County’s voters approved Proposition 403, the Road Maintenance Sales Tax in 2014, providing over $8 million in revenues annually and supporting investments in our people, organizational improvements, capital projects, pavement preservation projects and equipment for the next 18 years.
