The authority and responsibility of local public works departments vary from municipality to
municipality; however, they typically include overseeing and maintaining municipal facilities and
infrastructure and providing certain public services. Depending upon the municipal structure, these
duties may include oversight of the operation and management of: municipal buildings; facilities for
managing solid and other wastes (landfill or transfer station); streets and roads; stormwater and flood
control components; the municipal vehicle fleet; municipal parks and grounds; and/or right of way management, including street trees.
Municipal public works provides a number of public services including waste collection, street sweeping and cleaning, leaf collection, and street maintenance. In virtually all these efforts, there is a link between actions of the local public works department and other entities of the municipality to include, utility department, code enforcement, building, parks and recreation, engineering, fire department, and police

The Building Division is under the direction of the Public Works Director, Robert Eaves. Before building or constructing within the Municipality, contact the City Engineer and allow the City to be of assistance to your project.
The primary mission of the Building Department is to serve the public in matters of Building Code enforcement and construction project review and observation related to such Code enforcement.
This office also enforces other violations of the City of Louisville Code of Ordinances where assigned to this office and as warranted. Our mission normally concludes with the completed construction of a generally code compliant structure for use in residential or commercial application as appropriate. This mission may also result in the abatement of unsafe or otherwise inappropriate structures where structural circumstances leave the property in a condition that is unsafe to the public health and welfare.
This office works closely with the Louisville Fire Department to provide review and inspection services for new construction as well as projects in existing structures. This office also works with the City's Zoning and Planning Commission to help assure that their important concerns are addressed to their satisfaction and that they have the opportunity to monitor any such concerns for individual projects
