Madison celebrates new public works facility

Madison’s Public Works Department has moved to a newly constructed facility located on Palmer Road. The new address at 240 Palmer Road provides 19,565 square feet of work space on the 15 acre property. A ceremonial ribbon cutting will be held this morning at 10 a.m. to celebrate the transition.

“Our Public Works team is crucial in providing services residents use every day, and as Madison grows our employees have had to keep up with the needs of citizens. We are thrilled to provide this space for our employees to better serve our community,” says Mayor Paul Finley.

“Having more space gives us better response time for daily work and emergency calls,” mentions Kent Smith, Director of Public Works.

Safety for citizens and employees was a priority in making the decision to expand. While the department actively aids in severe weather threats, the old facility located on Celtic Drive required trucks and equipment to be maneuvered in order to get in and out, slowing response times.

“The morale and motivation from our crew has absolutely sky rocketed since the move. Taking more pride in what we do and how we conduct business is a huge plus,” said Smith.

The City along with the Madison Chamber of Commerce will host official ribbon cutting with speeches from city leaders and a tour of the new space.
