The Department of Public Works (DPW) is critical to delivering day to day services to the city. We plow the streets, pick up the trash, service sewers, keep traffic flowing, and maintain our streets.

We issue permits for block parties, road cuts, and more. You can get Public Works permits in-person from City Hall Commons, Room 102, 201 East Washington Street, Syracuse, NY 13202. You can also visit the Central Permit Office to complete permits online as they become available.
Our office is not open to the public
