The following are some of the larger buildings maintained by the Facilities Maintenance Section:
In addition to building maintenance, staff manages the City’s hazardous material recycling program, CNG refueling station, emergency generator permitting, and air quality regulation compliance. Staff also provides technical assistance during the development of new buildings and parks as well as managing numerous capital improvement projects each year.
Staff actively research and install new technologies to improve the energy efficiency of the City’s buildings. Some examples of the technologies that the City is currently using include cool roofs, LED lighting and computer managed air conditioning systems. Future technologies that will be implemented include solar generation, centralized HVAC controls, expanded building automation systems, and permanent electricity load-shifting strategies.
