   City and Public Works officials held a ribbon - cutting for the new Department of Public Works ( DPW ) Center at 25 Industrial Lane on Thursday , May 19 . The event coincided with National Public Works Week , a time to recognize the essential services provided by Public Works Departments nationwide . The Public Works Department provides the residents of New Rochelle with essential services that maintain the City ' s critical infrastructure and safety .
   The DPW Center houses the Bureaus of Streets and Highways ......and Central Garage , and provides covered storage for Public Works vehicles along with a wash bay , both of which extend the useful life of vehicles . The Center also features a training room for DPW staff and an Emergency Operations Center . A new City Yard Waste and Refuse Facility is under construction at 85 Beechwood Avenue , which will house offices for Sanitation and Recycling staff , a permanent salt shed ( 2 , 000 - ton capacity ) , and a Yard Waste facility equipped with a scale to handle charges for disposal . Completing the triad is the newly - constructed Cliff Fuel Station at 90 Birch Street . Together these facilities serve the City’s population of over 80 , 000 within 10 square miles .  
   “This year’s theme is ‘Ready and Resilient’ , which perfectly describes the dedicated members of our department , ” said Commissioner Jim Moran . “We celebrate the opening of this new facility , and the additional sites , with gratitude for the service of the bureaus that will be housed here and that of the other bureaus that provide essential services throughout every season , and in response to every need . ” The Public Works Department consists of 127 staff members in eight bureaus: Administration , Central Garage , Engineering , Traffic Services , Property and Grounds , Sanitation , Sewers & Drains and Streets & Highways .
   “This new facility brings this essential department into the 21st century . As the work they do is often unseen , this event - and Public Works week annually - is an opportunity to express our appreciation for their hard work and service , ” said City Manager Charles B . Strome , III .
   Mayor Bramson noted , “The completion of this center is an achievement of generational significance , with three vital benefits to our community: ( 1 ) enhanced safety and dignity for DPW workers who perform some of New Rochelle ' s most essential duties; ( 2 ) modern , efficient infrastructure to meet the current and long - term service needs of a growing city; and ( 3 ) a visionary change in land use that unlocks the enormous untapped potential of the Echo Bay waterfront for the public ' s use and enjoyment .  I congratulate and thank the leaders and partners , past and present , whose sustained commitment to this complex challenge over the span of decades has made this day possible . ”
