A Note from the Director:

“Welcome to the Public Works Department where most of the ‘heavy lifting’ in the Lafourche Parish Government takes place!

The Public Works Department consists of a group of talented and hardworking people that provide the following services:

- Road maintenance
- Stormwater drainage operation and maintenance
- Solid waste collection
- Building maintenance
- Compliance enforcement
- Nuisance abatement

We have field offices in Thibodaux, Chackbay, Raceland, Lockport, Bayou Blue and Galliano along with administrative staff in Mathews.

Our goal is to provide the Parish residents and property owners with the best possible services at reasonable costs.  If you have any public works concerns, please call (985)537-7603.
