Welcome to the Director's Corner

The City of Kingsport's Public Works Department is a full service organization providing daily infrastructure maintenance and public services to our citizens.  We are a broad group with a variety of skilled and technical employees.

We are everyday people doing extraordinary things everyday, and everyday we desire to remain safety minded.  You may see our folks wearing the bright and reflective safety vests; some may be wearing the safety vests along with a hard hat; or you may see traffic cones in front of and/or behind our parked vehicles.  These are all part of our everyday safety practices.

Safety is for everyone, and please remember...

"The Safe Way, Every Day"
