Message from the Director

I look to improve Beaufort through effective and efficient waste and debris collection practices and environmentally conscious disposal methods, through preventative and recurring maintenance of roadways and streets, and routine and project landscaping operations for the Town, and that’s just what the public sees.
All of these duties and more are completed by a team of eight Public Works employees who under my supervision perform to the best of their abilities and share the same desire to build upon and enhance Beaufort, NC.
