The Public Works Department is tasked with building and maintaining the County's roads, including their storm water drainage systems.
We are here to provide the best service possible to the citizens of Columbia County by assuring the roads and right-of-ways within the County road system are maintained in a proficient, timely manner and are kept safe for the public.
The Columbia County Public Works Department constructs and oversees road construction contracts, maintains roads and bridges, repairs vehicles and heavy equipment.
The existing paved roads will require reconditioning or resurfacing during their life, generally every 5 to 20 years. The frequency is primarily dependent on age, type of surface, traffic volume, subsurface drainage, and volume of trucks.
Columbia County offers the Private Road Assessment Program to assist residents of private roads with upgrading/maintaining these roads. Columbia County Ordinance No. 2000-2 addresses the procedures for the program. Questions concerning the program and/or a copy of the Ordinance can be obtained by contacting Chad Williams at (386) 758-1019.
