City of Harrison Public Works Director Jim Leslie oversees three departments with 21 employees. The team provides a wide range of City services that keep the community functioning, clean and safe.

The City Services Department handles all the street maintenance including snow removal, leaf and yard waste collection, street sweeping, and curb and pothole repairs. The department also maintains five parks with walking trails and a variety of sports surfaces. In the 2020 to 2021 winter season, they treated City streets with 750 tons of salt. 

The Water Plant Department maintains a treatment plant and about 50 to 55 miles of pipeline. The water plant serves the City's 13,000 residents and 600 businesses with clean and safe drinking water. A water softener installation is underway at the plant and is expected to be complete in 2022.

The Wastewater Plant treats waste water produced from homes, businesses and industrial facilities in the City before it is safely discharged to the Whitewater River. The plant has ample capacity to support growth in the City. 

A video about the department, answers to frequently asked questions and more information is available on this page.
