Mission Statement

Our mission is to encourage economic development by retaining and facilitating the expansion of existing businesses, attracting new high value, high wage businesses to the area and fostering the development of complimentary business clusters.  The City recognizes the importance of maintaining partnerships with local, County, regional and State agencies and organizations in promoting the economic prosperity of DeLand.

Many communities talk about being pro-business, but few have been as progressive in establishing tangible methods and procedures to ensure a streamlined permitting process that will allow new and expanding companies to move from planning to production in the shortest time possible.

Duties & Responsibilities:  

Public Works consists of 50+ employees operating six divisions: Administration, Streets, Forestry/Trees, Urban Beautification, Fleet Maintenance, and the Stormwater Enterprise Fund.  The Street division is responsible for the maintenance of all City owned roadways and sidewalks, to ensure safe access to motorist and pedestrians.  The Forestry/Tree division handles all trimming, removal and replanting of City owned trees.  The Urban Beautification division is responsible for all landscape maintenance for select City parks, City facilities, and the downtown streetscape.  The Fleet division is responsible for the maintenance of all City owned vehicles and equipment. The Storm Water division, which is separately accounted for in an enterprise fund, is responsible for the maintenance of City retention areas, the City owned storm water drainage system, and street sweeping throughout the city.
