Department of Public Works

The D.P.W. Complex is located at 120 Theophilus F. Smith Road and you can conveniently reach us by calling 508-760-6220. Office hours are 7:30 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. Monday through Friday. Please be prepared to provide your name, address and phone number so we can contact you with an answer to your request, thank you.

The Department of Public Works provides a myriad of professional services to the public. The Department maintains the Town sanitation, highway, grounds, cemeteries, municipal buildings and engineering divisions. In addition it supports all other municipal departments with their endeavors.

It is our goal to provide the public with the highest quality service within our resources. The Department is committed to provide a professional staff that is responsive to the needs of the Town as a whole. From the occasional downed tree limb, snow removal or natural disasters, staff members are many times the first to respond in the event of emergencies and are on-call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Departmental staff have obtained a wealth of experience and knowledge over many years of service. Many staff members have commercial drivers licenses, are hazardous waste-site certified, construction supervisors or have many other specialized talents and/or licenses. Continuous training of staff members in safety, professional education and cross-training in multiple operations strengthen our ability to serve you.

We appreciate all the support from the community and will continue to provide you with the services that help to make the Town of Dennis a great place to live, work and visit.
