The Barre Town Department of Public Works is responsible for town highways (approximately 96 miles: 68 paved miles and 28 gravel), the sewage collection system with two pump stations, the water system with two pump stations, two water storage tanks and a well. The DPW operates its own sand and gravel pit which supplies sand for the winter road maintenance and gravel for road maintenance and reconstruction. The shop or vehicle maintenance staff maintains the town's entire fleet of vehicles and equipment. In addition to their regular duties the DPW provides labor and equipment to operate the Holden Road Lawn Waste site. The DPW is called upon whenever any town department needs construction or building maintenance help. The DPW employs fourteen people, including management and the shop staff and takes on four seasonal positions each summer.

Call the Department of Public Works (DPW), using the phone numbers shown above to report problems or concerns with town roads, sewerage system, or water system. DPW will also respond to reports of trees in the road, missing or damaged road signs, suspected sewer backups, or leaking water lines. Report problems with streetlights to the Town Manager's Office (802-479-9331). For information about the lawn waste site and the Wilson Recycling Depot see the Solid Waste Department page.
