Histoire administrative

The Public Works department was started at the first Town of Red Deer meeting on July 6, 1901, initially as the Public Works Committee of Council. In 1907, it became a department reporting to the Mayor and Town Commissioner.

It moved around the organizational chart several times. In 1943, it was moved under Electric Light and Power, and then moved back out to its own area in 1946. In 1949, it moved under the City Engineer alongside Parks. Between 1954 and 1969 it was under Engineering but generally listed in the charts as two component parts (Roads and Utilities). In 1970, Public Works remained part of Engineering but was now referred to as Public Works again.

In 1995, Development Services division was created. Its member departments included Public Works, Engineering, Fire, Electric Light and Power, Land and Economic Development, and Bylaw / Inspections and Licensing.
