Duties & Responsibilities

The Porter Public Works Department maintains the streets and sewer collection system within the Town of Porter. With nine fulltime employees, we are responsible for snow removal, brush removal, and other minor debris removal. The Public Works Department also coordinates with the Stormwater Management Board regarding the maintenance of public drains and helps the residents with the maintenance of public ditches. We are also responsible for the repair and maintenance of roads, curbs, and sidewalks.

The Public Works Department will pick-up items, within the Town’s Brush and Leaf Rules, left at the curb by Porter residents as long as they are neatly piled (according to the rules) and can be handled by collection staff. Wood chips are available to property owners living within the Town of Porter. To receive wood chips, individuals must call the Town of Porter Public Works at 219-926-4212 and have their name and address placed on a request list. Wood chips will be delivered to requestors in the order of this list.
