The City of Lafayette Public Works Department is dedicated to providing quality water, storm water, and water reclamation services; and maintaining city streets and infrastructure, all with superior customer service. It is our mission to respond to customers’ needs in a timely manner and to instill trust and confidence in our abilities.

Maintaining visibility at intersections

As we enter the growing season, it’s important for residents to be aware of their responsibility to maintain vegetation in intersection rights-of-way adjacent to your property. Residents are required to trim or remove:

  • Bushes, grasses, or other plants over 3 feet tall 
  • Tree branches over 7 feet tall

Thank you for keeping Lafayette safe for all!
