The Public Works Department for the Town of Spruce Pine has the challenging responsibility of keeping things running smoothly in the city limits and beyond. While the Town contracts with American Water Services to operate both the water and wastewater plants, the Public Works Department maintains the distribution and collection system for both water and wastewater. This department installs, maintains and reads water meters. Our employees are responsible for city street maintenance (including snow removal), leaf pickup, brush pickup, white goods pickup and more.

Phillip Hise is the Public Works Director for the Town of Spruce Pine. He supervises a full-time crew of six employees.
