The Public Works Department is responsible for the streets sidewalks and fleet maintenance for the Town of Carbondale. The Public Works Department coordinates special event street management, ensures Town streets and public right-of-ways are maintained and safe, and assists with emergency readiness plans. 


Public Open House, February 21st, 5-6:30 pm for Sidewalk Improvements - 3rd Street/Colorado Ave., Main St. to 4th St.

Street light outage reporting: If possible, please provide the grid number of the light. The grid numbers are the numbers that identify each light in the field, they are yellow numbers on a black plate nailed to the pole at about eye-level. Receiving the grid number is the best way of repairing the lights out as Xcel has a lot of crews that work during the day, so if we receive the wrong pole number they might fix a light that is working.


The Town of Carbondale has a "Snow and Ice Removal Ordinance".  All residents and business owners must remove all snow and ice from public sidewalks within 24 hours of each snow. Do not remove snow from private property to the street or public right-of-way.
