Public Works


The City of Ankeny Public Works Department provides our residents, businesses, and visitors with safe, reliable, clean, and sustainable infrastructure that is planned, designed, constructed, operated, and maintained in an economical and efficient manner.

This is accomplished through comprehensive annual programs that include:

  • Public Improvement Construction Projects
  • Street Pavement Preservation and Maintenance
  • Storm Water and Drainage
  • Recycling Events
  • Snow and Ice Removal
  • Street Sweeping
  • Traffic Control Maintenance

The Public Works Department provides timely responses to street, stormwater and drainage, and traffic control maintenance issues. Large-scale public works infrastructure improvements are completed through major design and construction projects that are included in the City's Capital Improvement Program. The majority of our services are scheduled, proactive maintenance activities. If you observe a problem, we encourage you to please report it to our office and we'll correct it in a timely manner.


The Public Works Department is organized into four separate divisions:

  • Operations
  • Roadway Engineering
  • Storm Water and Environmental
  • Traffic Engineering
