The Public Works Department staff maintains and reconstructs all public streets within the city limits and sidewalks. From major street repair projects to minor debris clean-up in the aftermath of windstorms, Friendsville public works crew keeps roadways clear and passable for motorists. During the spring, summer, and fall, the public works department also conducts all right-of-way mowing on state and city roads through town. In addition to mowing, a major component of the public works department's duties is keeping roads passable during the winter months. In the aftermath of winter storms, street crews are dispatched with plows, salt, and gravel chips to work all streets within the city limits, often beginning to clear the roads before the snow has even stopped falling. The department also maintains water distribution mains.
