The Department of Community Services provides a wide variety of programs and services designed to address the diverse needs of the community and promote a spirit of cooperation and partnership between citizens and the City. 

The Department works closely with individuals, nonprofit organizations, businesses and government agencies to enhance the quality of life through citizen participation and the provision of cultural, transportation, code enforcement, and community services and programs. The Community Services Department manages three City facilities and administers the City's cable and trash franchise agreements along with a number of specialized services for youth, seniors, and citizen information and assistance. 

The Department will be launching the Community Projects Grant program in early 2015.  Nonprofit organizations are encouraged to sign up for e-notifications related to the program.
