Public Works & Mobility Department
We've made some exciting changes to the Public Works Department, which is now the Public Works & Mobility Department. Details coming soon about our department restructuring!
The Public Works Department strives to ensure a high quality of life for Missoula’s citizens, visitors, and businesses by providing services essential for safe, healthy living and working environments as well as safe travel on local roadways.
