Public Works Operations

Gravel Roads

The Department of Public Works Operations is responsible for the maintenance of 300 center lane miles of gravel roadways within Douglas County.  These roadways range from rural arterial roadways that carry several hundred vehicles per day to residential gravel roads carrying less than 20 vehicles per day.

Noxious Weed Management

A major component of the Undesirable Plant Management Plan is the requirement to provide Douglas County Property Owners with technical assistance in determining methods to control or eliminate their weed problems. We have worked very hard over the past 15 years to insure County owned properties are under treatment for weeds and are continuing that endeavor.  We have worked with other public entities to assist them in their weed control problems. At the same time, we offered technical assistance to private property owners to control noxious weeds on their land be it several hundred acres or an individual lot.
