WELCOMEThe Public Works Department provides services and programs that affect the daily lives of everyone who lives and works in Kuna. In pursuit of our mission and vision, the Public Works Department is organized into several departments. Departments within the Public Works Department coordinate major construction and maintenance projects to improve the overall network of the city. The city is divided in several zones with a set schedule delineating what work will be done in a particular zone each year.
