Department of Public Services & You

What is it that touches the life of each and every person in Madison Heights each and every day? Did you take a shower, wash a dish, run under the hose, or just get a drink of cold clean water today? We’re sure you did, but did you stop to think of how much is involved in providing you with all of the pure clean water you need every day? Did you stop at an intersection, ride over a smooth new concrete patch or cross safely at a crosswalk? Once again, you probably did, but who makes sure that the roadway is kept clean and drivable, and traffic moves safely from place to place with proper signage and lane markings? The answer is the Department of Public Services!
