The City of Wilmington is dedicated to providing a wide range of services that help define the quality of life for residents of Wilmington.  You may rarely notice our employees, until there’s a winter snowstorm, or the garbage doesn’t get picked up on time, or a big pothole develops on your street.  Our daily mission is to keep Wilmington’s transportation system and infrastructure clean, safe and running smoothly.  It’s a 24/7 commitment, 365 days a year, and one that each of the nearly 150 public works employees takes to heart.

The Department of Public Services and the Department of Public Safety are under the supervision of Brian A. Shidaker, Director of Public Services/Public Safety.
