The Police Department staff includes Community Service Officers responsible for control of domestic animals and pets. A city ordinance forbids allowing dogs, cats or other domestic animals to run at large beyond the land limits of the owner. This means that pets must be leashed and under your control when off of your property. Also, owners are responsible for cleaning up after their pet.
Public Works includes Fleet, Parks & Forestry, Streets, Storm Water and Utilities (Water and Sewer). The department is also responsible for special watering permits, hydrant permits, spring overweight permits, and building moving permits.
