Summer Help

The Department of Public Works offers entry level summer opportunities for employment in our Public Works Department. The DPW supports a wide variety of activities and programs over the summer months and it relies on motivated and hard-working summer help to ensure that our roads, parks, water, wastewater, and stormwater infrastructure, fleet, waste management, engineering, and buildings are all ready for the upcoming year. These jobs offer the opportunity to experience public service at its most fundamental level by providing insight into the workings of infrastructure maintenance. Those with an interest in construction, engineering, environmental science, public service, recycling, or trades work are strongly encouraged to apply for this opportunity. Summer Help applications open during the Spring of every year for employment in June through August.
