DPW Set to Host Series of Community Meetings

Press Release

The Baltimore City Department of Public Works (DPW) will hold a series of community meetings throughout the City beginning Tuesday, December 11, 2018. At the community meetings, residents will get a chance to learn about the work we are doing in every part of Baltimore to improve and protect our drinking water system, enhance our streams and repair our storm drains, renew our sewage lines, clean our streets and alleys, battle rats and graffiti, and much more. In addition, residents will have an opportunity to discuss water and sewer bills, trash and recycling services, and even learn about employment opportunities with the department. 

DPW Director Rudolph S. Chow, P.E., will lead the “DPW in the Community” events. He will be joined by the Department’s senior leaders, and our Community Liaisons, who are well known from their attendance at hundreds of neighborhood meetings. They will all be on hand to answer your questions and share information about what they are doing to serve Baltimore City residents.
