Facilities Maintenance fixes what is broken and keeps operational what is not broken. If a county facility has leaks, squeaks, breaks or strange noises coming from closets or rooftops, Facilities Maintenance will respond.
  • Custodial Services - Maintain and clean and sanitize environments for the campus community and visitors. The work is about more than just cleaning, however - It's about the health of our community, safety of our visitors, and the sense of pride on our campus.
