Mission Statement - Safety is Job #1
November 2, 2017 - OSHA Standards Legislation: The House of Representatives have passed a bill last week that would apply the OSHA safety standards to public workers. The Senate passed their own version (known as bill "S.2167") of the bill weeks ago. The two versions will now need to be reconciled before the bill will move to the Governor for his signature. The legislation also creates an occupational health and safety hazard advisory board and MWWA would have a seat on this board.
The West Springfield Department of Public Works works every day at a diverse number of tasks that effect almost every aspect of life for those living, visiting and/or working within the boundaries of the Town of West Springfield. Safety is our number one priority each day.
Other major Public Works responsibilities include maintenance of streets and sidewalks, installation and repair of street signs, water treatment and distribution, snow removal and sanding, collection and pumping of sanitary sewer effluent, flood protection, collection of recyclables, solid waste, yard waste and large bulk items.
We acknowledge that the safety and comfort of the citizens of West Springfield is the prime purpose of our mission and to them we commit our efforts to attain each goal with environmental sensitivity and fiscal constraint.
