Our Mission

The Public Works Department mission is to maintain the city’s infrastructure in order to provide for the safe travel of all motorists and pedestrians.  This requires routine maintenance of streets including snow and ice control, sidewalks, signage, traffic signals, and the city’s fleet.  Fall leaves are collected at the curb to provide for a more efficient storm drainage system.

Ride Along Program

Director of Public Works Jim Link is offering a new opportunity to ride the streets of Ballwin with him and see street conditions first-hand from his perspective. Link will explain how he balances 31 Public Works employees between street maintenance, tree work, and seasonal work such as leaf collection and snow removal.

If you’re interested in participating in the Ride Along program, please fill out an application form and email it to Jim at . He will be in contact with those who submit an application based on his schedule and availability to host participants.
