Welcome to the Public Works Department

Welcome to the Town of Morehead City’s Public Works Department. The department has an approximate staff of 20 employees with part-time seasonal employees that aid the department from roughly May through October, or as we like to say “from summer to the Seafood Festival.” The Public Works department is an integral part of Morehead City; they are responsible for maintaining all of our city parks, public restrooms, public accesses, city buildings and much more! Public Works also includes the Town Garage and cemeteries, most notably Bay View and Greenwood. Public Works is also involved in keeping Morehead City clean and green by offering curbside trash and recycling services.
