Public Works Department Overview
The Town of Lady Lake Public Works Department provides a wide variety of services for its residents and utility customers. Services which include anything from patching potholes, trimming trees, highway landscaping, to water service, sewer service, and our new reuse water service for irrigation. With the implementation of reuse water service, the Town of Lady Lake ensures that Florida’s most valuable natural resource is used wisely and also ensures that the residents receive sustainable utility services for many years to come.
One of the most recent accomplishments for the Public Works Department include extension of utilities on CR 466 from US 27/441 to the Sumter County line. All of which were funded by developers and impact fees collected for future development. Existing customers were not required to fund any of the 2+ miles of new infrastructure.
Along with the utility extensions on CR 466, the road was widened to four lanes to provide relief to the highly trafficked roadway. The project included new sidewalks, lighting, landscaping, and even a multi-use path for mixed pedestrian traffic along a portion of the roadway. This project was funded and constructed by a joint venture between Lake County and The Villages. The Town of Lady Lake was actively involved in all phases of the project and currently maintains all of the corridors landscaping.
Another recent accomplishment would be the implementation of a Pavement Management Program or PMP. The PMP is a comprehensive program that includes routine inspection and rating of all of Lady Lake’s streets that are maintained. Using this information along with computer software, Lady Lake’s staff can develop a yearly project list to incorporate aging streets into a resurfacing schedule, prioritizing the most critical streets in need of attention.
Lady Lake’s Public Works Department takes great professional pride in the services performed for the residents, as is apparent by the aesthetically pleasant landscaping and cleanliness of the main thoroughfares inside the town limits. This same clean and pleasant atmosphere is also apparent throughout all of the neighborhoods in Lady Lake.
Please feel free to give us a call with any questions or concerns.
