You rely on the Box Elder Public Works Department every time you drive to work, turn on the water, or flush the toilet. We make sure that snow is plowed, streets are swept, potholes are patched, streets are signed, and traffic lights are working. We ensure that your parks are maintained properly. We keep the sewers flowing and the Wastewater Treatment Plant (owned by the State of South Dakota) running to protect our waterways. In short, “We Keep Box Elder Running.”
The Public Works Department's mission is to provide quality services to the Box Elder community with pride, courtesy, integrity, reliability, and commitment. We put Box Elder first.
