The mission of the Public Works, Parks, and Building Maintenance Divisions of the Public Works Department is to provide the citizens, property owners, and visitors to the Town of Moraga with quality roadways to travel on, well-kept parks for recreation and well maintained facilities to use. Public Works also oversees the ADA Advisory Committee and the Traffic Safety Advisory Committee.
The maintenance crews operation from 7:00 am - 3:30 pm. Given the field nature of their work, they are unavailable without an appointment. To make an appointment, contact the Public Works Department at (925) 888-7026 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Public Works Department has unveiled a new way to bring potholes to their attention. Residents can now send a text or e-mail to email@example.com, which will allow staff to better track and manage pothole repair requests. E-mail and text messages also allow for pictures, which make locating and prioritizing the repair much more efficient. To best assist staff with locating and repairing potholes, please include your name along with the address of the pothole, as well as any landmarks which will be helpful in locating it.
Due mainly to budget constraints and staffing levels, the Public Works staff currently performed pothole repairs once each month, at the beginning of the month. The new text/e-mail system will help the Maintenance crews to more efficiently maintain Moraga’s streets and spend its limited resources wisely.
The Town of Moraga is a limited service municipality. We have no major equipment and a limited number of maintenance workers on staff. Most of our construction and repair projects are completed on a contractual basis. To assist you in resolving your specific problem, we have developed an Emergency Services List that lists local suppliers and contractors that may be able to help you.

- Did you know on March 26, Public Works hosted an all day pavement preservation seminar for other local agencies and engineering consultants? The workshop was presented by VSS International, the same contractor that completed the 2013 Pavement Repair project for the Town. Topics focused on cost-effective preventative maintenance treatments like the Town’s rubberized cape seal and microsurfacing work completed last year.
