The Department of Public Works consists of the Supervisor, the Assistant Supervisor, and eight employees. They maintain some 21 parks, 18 miles of roads, alleyways and rights of way. Minor repairs of pot holes and other deterioration are made as needed. Scenic and Ochs Highways are State and County roads respectively and it is their responsibility to maintain them properly.

Garbage Pickup- Pickup is scheduled for each Monday and Thursday. On Town holidays place garbage out on the next business day.
Holidays affected are:

  • New Years Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving
  • Christmas
Dumpster Days- First Saturday of each month.

Recycling- Please bring all of your recyclables to the Town maintenance facility (800 Scenic) between 7:30am- 4:00pm Monday-Friday. Items do not have to be separated- all items, except cardboard, go into the same bin.

Tennessee American Water Co., EPB, Chattanooga Gas, AT&T and Comcast are solely responsible for their services and should be contacted directly. However, it is their responsibility to repair completely any damages their services cause to Town property and the Town should be notified should a resident observe their failure to do so.

The sewer system is maintained by the WWTA.  If you experience any sewer problem outside your home, please call the WWTA at 423.209.7842.  For night and weekend emergencies, call 423-209-6408
