The Department of Public Works provides several essential services to the residents and businesses of Dundee, and is the Town’s largest department. Public Works is composed of seven (7) divisions: Parks, Recreation, Streets, Facilities, Water, Sewer, and Stormwater. It also oversees the infrastructure projects implemented to enhance the quality of life in town. The Town has a public water supply system with improvements made over the years to provide for development which has occurred, especially along US Highway 27. The daily consumption of water now averages about 450,000 gallons per day.
The Dundee Town Commission recently approved expanding the existing wastewater treatment plant to promote growth east of the downtown core area. The Public Works Department is highly involved in expanding the coverage of the Town with a collection system which can provide wastewater disposal for most of the commercial and public facility property in the Town. With funding assistance from the United States Department of Agriculture, a collection system construction project was completed during 2002 which provided two pump stations and several thousand feet of force main to remove sewage from the SW area of Dundee, including the area near the intersection of Main and Center Streets. From these facilities, gravity sewer extensions and connections will result in diversion of wastewater to the Town’s plant that has for many years been pumped out of Town by the Utility Department of Polk County. Many other commercial properties are expected to be able to connect to the same sanitary sewer facility.
The Public Works Department provides many services to the Town’s residents in addition to water and sewer service. The usual street and storm-water facility maintenance is provided. The extensive public land held by the Town as a result of all the lakes and the area immediately around the lakes, being designated as public lands in the original platting of the Town, is regularly mowed and provided with landscape maintenance to enhance its use as park land. The solid waste generated within the Town is franchised out to Advanced Disposal.
You can view and download the application online. Please fill the application out and bring it to the Dundee Town Hall along with the following items: a SIGNED warranty deed or copy of lease/rental agreement, picture identification and deposit ($100 inside/$125 outside Town limits).
