Woodland’s Public Works staff had 61 working days from September through November, responding to 31 requests for service daily, according to a recently released quarterly report.
The Quarterly Status Report is provided to the City Council to let public officials know what the agency has been doing when it comes to water, sewer, electrical and road maintenance. Public works staff are those city employees responsible for making sure the city keeps functioning, not only during times of heavy rains but when sewer lines get clogged, traffic signals go out and public roads fail.
Most people saw Public Works staff in action over the past couple of weeks when they put out notices on city streets warning drivers that they wouldn’t be able to park in some sections of downtown during upcoming events such as the Woodland Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting ceremony.
According to the report, Public works staff had 1,912 service requests for everything from water to signs and markings. They generated 2,557 work orders on those requests.
For the entire year, through Nov. 30, there were 10,469 work orders generated off of 7,109 service requests.
