City Holds Ribbon Cutting for New Department of Public Works Center

IMG_0936

City and Public Works officials held a ribbon-cutting for the new Department of Public Works (DPW) Center at 25 Industrial Lane on Thursday, May 19. The event coincided with National Public Works Week, a time to recognize the essential services provided by Public Works Departments nationwide. The Public Works Department provides the residents of New Rochelle with essential services that maintain the City's critical infrastructure and safety.

The DPW Center houses the Bureaus of Streets and Highways and Central Garage, and provides covered storage for Public Works vehicles along with a wash bay, both of which extend the useful life of vehicles. The Center also features a training room for DPW staff and an Emergency Operations Center. A new City Yard Waste and Refuse Facility is under construction at 85 Beechwood Avenue, which will house offices for Sanitation and Recycling staff, a permanent salt shed (2,000-ton capacity), and a Yard Waste facility equipped with a scale to handle charges for disposal. Completing the triad is the newly-constructed Cliff Fuel Station at 90 Birch Street. Together these facilities serve the City’s population of over 80,000 within 10 square miles. 

“This year’s theme is ‘Ready and Resilient’, which perfectly describes the dedicated members of our department,” said Commissioner Jim Moran. “We celebrate the opening of this new facility, and the additional sites, with gratitude for the service of the bureaus that will be housed here and that of the other bureaus that provide essential services throughout every season, and in response to every need.” The Public Works Department consists of 127 staff members in eight bureaus: Administration, Central Garage, Engineering, Traffic Services, Property and Grounds, Sanitation, Sewers & Drains and Streets & Highways.

“This new facility brings this essential department into the 21st century. As the work they do is often unseen, this event- and Public Works week annually- is an opportunity to express our appreciation for their hard work and service,” said City Manager Charles B. Strome, III.

Mayor Bramson noted, “The completion of this center is an achievement of generational significance, with three vital benefits to our community: (1) enhanced safety and dignity for DPW workers who perform some of New Rochelle's most essential duties; (2) modern, efficient infrastructure to meet the current and long-term service needs of a growing city; and (3) a visionary change in land use that unlocks the enormous untapped potential of the Echo Bay waterfront for the public's use and enjoyment.  I congratulate and thank the leaders and partners, past and present, whose sustained commitment to this complex challenge over the span of decades has made this day possible.”
