The City of Fontana Public Works Department had a busy year in 2021, and this year the department will be providing many more services for local residents.
The Public Works Department is responsible for the maintenance and functional operations of the cityâs existing parks and landscape, public buildings and community centers, streets, sidewalks, sewers, storm drains, solid waste and street sweeping.
—– ACCORDING to the cityâs annual report, these traffic signal projects are scheduled to be completed in 2022:

â¢ Micro-grid battery storage systems will be installed and completed in 2022 at the following locations: Police Department, City Hall/Development Services, Public Works Corporate Yard, Fontana Community Senior Center, and Community Services Department. These systems will provide for the use of stored energy at peak hours, ultimately reducing energy costs.
â¢ A backup generator for Heritage Community Center will be installed, allowing the center to continue to operate as a cooling center in the event of a power outage.
