Department of Public Works
The Department of Public Works is a vital part of the village. Without the DPW, the village would pretty much come to a standstill. The DPW's functions include record keeping, maintenance and future planning of the major/local streets, maintaining the water and sewer systems, and improvement/maintenance of the buildings and grounds of the village. They make sure that rules and regulations from the state and federal government are followed. The guys even do the maintenance on the village equipment, saving in repair costs.
Municipal Wastewater Treatment System
In 1972 Vermontville upgraded its wastewater treatment facilities to facultative lagoons to be in compliance with the Clean Water Act. Both DPW employees are certified and responsible for the proper operation, testing, treatment, monitoring and security of these lagoons.
