Welcome to the City of Sebring’s Public Works Department web site. First let me say that it is an honor and a privilege to serve the community of Sebring. The Public Works Department serves the community in several areas that you are accustomed to seeing. These areas are garbage collection, curb side recycling, brush collection, bulk trash collection and the never-ending street repairs, just to name a few. However, there are also areas that are not as visible that you may not know about. These include traffic signs, pavement markings and the mowing of rights of way, the maintenance and repair of the storm water infrastructure along with the maintenance of all city owned buildings. Public Works crews are often called out in the middle of the night to clean up damage from severe storms. This just names a few of the things that we do.
Public Works employs twenty-two people working to provide a clean and safe environment for the residents of Sebring.
The Public Works Department consists of 2 departments:
The men and women of Public Works consider it an honor to serve our community. Thank you for allowing us to serve you.
I invite you to learn more about the Public Works Department and the services we provide for you.
