Public Works Department

Who is The Public Works Department?
With Joe Glaze as Supervisor and Eric Madson as the Mechanical specialist and operator, with help from seasonal workers, these two keep the city in tip top shape.

With fifty-seven (61) miles of roads (25 gravel and 36 blacktop) in the City of Nowthen our Public Works Department is always busy.  Public Works staff are not only responsible for maintaining and creating city roads, they also do brush and tree cutting, park mowing and maintenance, snow plowing & many other duties.
