Public Works Unit
The Mohawk Council of Kahnawá:ke’s Public Works Unit is mandated with the task of maintaining the community’s infrastructure, buildings, vehicles, heavy equipment and all public roads.
Public Works accomplishes this through several divisions:
The Public Works Unit functions in seasonal roles. In the winter months, the main focus is on Clearing snow from Kahnawá:ke’s roads. During the summer months, the focus is on the maintenance of the water and sewer system as well as roads, parks and other community structures.
There is a certain level of confusion regarding Public Works and Capital Construction. Capital Construction is in charge of building Kahnawá:ke structures like the sewage treatment plant. However, once these structures are complete and in use, it is Public Works’ role to maintain these buildings through repair and general upkeep.
