Hesperia Department of Public Works

The Hesperia Department of Public Works provides a wide variety of services including the repair and maintenance of all Village roadways, maintenance of public properties, responsible for snow removal on Village roads, and maintenance of Village parks. The Hesperia Department of Public Works office hours are Monday - Friday, 8:30am to 4:00pm.

At the present time, the Department of Public Works has a staff of three.


Snow Removal Operations

The snow and ice removal service on Village roadways is dictated by weather conditions with the main roads given first priority for plowing and salting to ensure emergency accessibility and traffic flow. Secondary residential streets are plowed as soon as possible thereafter. Commercial Driver License (CDL) is required for those individuals operating the large snow plowing equipment.

Snow removal and salting for M-20 and M-120 within the Village of Hesperia is the responsibility of the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT).

The Village currently uses a combination of salt and sand on the roadways to prevent ice forming and to improve traction.

Water Department

The Village of Hesperia maintains its own independent public water system. The system is composed of 3 wells, 2 ground-based water storage tanks, 1 suspended (tower) water storage tank, and several miles of distribution pipe. The system is maintained by a staff of two, who perform the day-to-day maintenance and purity testing on the system. The system pulls groundwater up from the local aquifer located below the village and pumps it directly into the water tower. It is then gravity-fed through the system for use. Average water use is approximately 100,000 gallons per day. Maximum capacity is in excess of 150,000 gallons per day.

Keep Fire Hydrants Clear

If there is a fire hydrant in the Village near your home, please be sure to keep the hydrant clear of snow and plantings to ensure easy access for the Fire Department in the event that it is needed.
