About Public Works

The Department of Public Works oversees all construction and land development, building inspections, water and sewer maintenance and street maintenance.  Public Works coordinates trash and recycling collection, snow removal and municipal building and park maintenance.  Public Works strives to provide the highest quality public works services in a safe, cost effective and customer oriented manner.  

Big Truck Days

The Town of Herndon’s Department of Public Works hosts its annual “Big Truck Days,” an opportunity for children – and their parents – to see the town’s big trucks and heavy equipment on display.  Light refreshments will be served and souvenirs will be provided to children.  The event is free; however, attendees are encouraged to bring non-perishable food donations for the needy. Large groups should call ahead.
