The DPW is responsible for the maintenance and repair of 56 miles of streets, 34 miles of sidewalks, 36 miles of storm sewer pipes, 42 miles of sewer mains and 233 acres of designated public parks. Other responsibilities include management and care of the cemetery, parks maintenance, snow and ice removal, fall leaf pick-up, spring brush pick-up and street sweeping. The 7 full time and 9 part-time seasonal employees of the Public Works Department will continue to provide high quality customer service to the citizens of Marshall that residents have come to know and to expect.




The Public Works Department will be picking up Christmas Trees placed at the curb the week of January 4 (weather dependent.)  Please do not place trees in the street.  Trees are chipped for recycle; so please remove all nails, decorations, or any other hazardous materials on or in the tree.  Trees that are placed in plastic bags will NOT be accepted.

This will be the only pass through the city.  

If you have any questions please call Phil Smith, DPW Superintendent at 269-558-0324.
