Director’s Message

On behalf of the 51 full time and 79 part-time dedicated West Hartford Public Works employees, I would like to thank the Town Manager Ron Van Winkle, the Town Council, other Town departments, residents and businesses for their support. You have provided us an opportunity to perform and deliver supporting services to a great community to live, work and play in.

Everything we accomplish is a result of the commitment and dedication of our most precious resource, the staff. The Public Works Department is a diverse group that possesses many talents. I believe we continue to accomplish more work with the smallest team of professionals in the long history of the department.

Our continuing challenge will be to deliver the same level of service to the stakeholders and residents in an efficient and cost effective manner. We are committed to the highest level of professionalism and best practices in servicing the Town’s assets and infrastructure. Based on the performance of our dedicated Public Works team we are up for the challenges of the future in delivering services to the community.
