Public Works


Public Works includes the maintenance, alterations, improvement and repair of streets, sidewalks, sewers, sewage disposal facilities, water mains, water facilities, and all other public grounds, buildings, facilities, and equipment, plus other duties.

The City has hired Perceptive Controls, Inc. (PCI) to provide public works services. PCI's Bangor team currently includes some familiar faces from the old DPW, such as Jim Taylor and Jorge Hernandez, who are now working for PCI, plus Randy Coulsen who comes to us from PCI. Also assisting us from PCI are Mark Duell (Vice President of Infrastructure Services) and Doug Prudden (Superintendent of Operations).

The City also contracts with Career Connections for mowing, trimming, cleaning, and non-street snow and ice clearing services.

PCI's DPW services include:
  1. Water (drinking water treatment, water distribution system, and the hydrant replacement program; the City Manager serves as the utility's administrator and City Hall does the billing)
  2. Sewer (collection system, treatment lagoons, and stormwater; the City Manager serves as the utility's administrator and City Hall does the billing)
  3. Major Streets (major streets and state trunkline assistance; including routine and winter maintenance, bridges, traffic services, etc.; plus street closures for parades and festivals; the City Manager is the Act 51 Street Administrator)
  4. Local Streets (local streets and alleys; including routine and winter maintenance, bridges, traffic services, etc.; plus street closures for parades and festivals; the City Manager is the Act 51 Street Administrator)
  5. Motor Equipment (DPW vehicles and equipment only, not police or fire, except coordination of fuel dispensing; however, disposal of old City vehicles/equipment is only through Council approval)
  6. Parks (operation and maintenance only, park improvements occur through recommendation by the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, as decided by the City Council; the City is assisted with lawn care by people who have adopted parks and contract work by Career Connections to mow the rest)
  7. Cemetery (groundskeeping, pouring foundations in the spring and fall, and burials; and City Hall administrates with guidance from the Cemetery Committee; lawn care work is done through a contract with Career Connections.)
  8. Grounds Services (formerly part of Public Services, includes mowing/trimming and snow/ice removal around City owned public buildings that are not park properties, cemetery properties, the DPW property, or utility properties, i.e., City Hall, the City library building, and City owned off-street parking and open space properties)
