These facilities include Roadways, Traffic Signals, Medians, Parks, Sewers, and City Building/Facilities. Services are provided using a combination of in-house personnel and private vendors. Some of the programs are as follows:

Building and Facilities Maintenance. Public Works maintains all of the City owned and/or leased facilities. Some of these facilities include: the Civic Center Complex, Sheriff's Facility, Neighborhood Center, former City Hall (Mary Perez School Site). Activities include janitorial services, carpentry, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, and painting repairs, and utility costs for all buildings maintained by the City.

Landscaping Maintenance. Landscaping requires continuous maintenance. Although the majority of landscape maintenance occurs within the City's network of Parks, all city medians, parkways, and buildings/facilities also are maintained. Some of the City's parks include: Victor Zuniga Park, Premier Park, Stanton Park, Norm Ross Sports Facilities, Hollenbeck Park, and Orangewood Park. Activities include routine trimming & grooming of landscaping, weed control (manual and chemical), maintenance of the irrigation and electrical systems, repair of playground equipment, standard routine landscaping (eg. thatching, seeding), fertilizing, and disposal of refuse.

Storm Drain Maintenance. Maintenance of storm drain facilities is crucial to preventing flooding. Crews continuously monitor and remove any blockages that occur. Also, the city is continuously augmenting water quality devices within the system. These devices are cleaned and maintained regularly. All storm drain maintenance activities comply with requirements of the City's National Pollutant Discharge Elimination (NPDES) Program.

Sanitary Sewer Maintenance. Maintenance of the city's system of sanitary sewers is crucial to prevent failures and backups. Sanitary Sewers are cleaned regularly, and their condition is continuously monitored. Maintenance activities comply with the city's National Pollutant Discharge Elimination (NPDES) program, and all environmental regulatory agency requirements.

Graffiti Abatement. Public Works crews are responsible for the elimination of graffiti from walls and buildings within the city. Abatement techniques include cleaning when possible, and painting over graffiti when not possible. Graffiti is only abated by city crews on City Property. Please call the City's Graffiti Hotline at 714-890-4252 to report Graffiti.
