The Village of Pewamo is proud to have the support of its Department of Public Works employees. Together they offer the Village nealy 43 years of experience! 

Mike Scollon is the current DPW Supervisor, and has been employed with the Village since 1988. Rob Sterner came on board in 2001. Their combined talents offer the Village extensive knowledge and countless experience in the endless duties of maintaining and improving the Village.

  • Water and Sewer systems are monitored closely on a daily basis. The infrastructure of these systems is complex, but well known by our men. Daily operations, water testing, and many other tasks allow for a systems that seems to operate flawlessly.

  • The occasional water main breaks are repaired, with normal service being resumed as soon as possible. In the unlikely event that our DPW cannot repair the break, outside contractors are called in.

  • The Village sewer and storm sewer systems are monitored and maintained, with constant attention paid to avoiding any unnecessary problems.

  • Street maintenance throughout the year allows for safe and easy travel in the Village, and as a courtesy service, our me work to remove snow from the Village sidewalks.

  • Maintenance of Village Parks can be a full time job in the spring and summer, but every effort is made to create parks that citizens and visitors can enjoy and be safe in.

  • Mowing throughout the Village on Village property and right of ways is also one of the many tasks that keep our Village looking its possible best. In the fall, our men add leaf pick up to their busy schedule, avoiding the bagging and removal of leaves by our citizens.

The Village of Pewamo is very proud of their DPW staff and we hope our citizens appreciate the work they do their constant efforts.
