The Tribe’s Department of Planning and Public Works provides direct services to tribal members and the general community. Our primary goal is to improve our community’s overall quality of life.   

Working in concert with our tribal membership, solutions are developed and implemented to address a variety of needs and opportunities. Some of the services that we provide include the tribe’s housing needs, our transportation network, current and long-range planning functions, the tribes realty program, economic development, grant writing, utility management, facility construction/maintenance, grounds maintenance, and housekeeping services.

What We Do

Public Works coordinates in concert with the Planning department to accomplish the goals and priorities of the Tribe and Tribal Council. This is done through a wide variety of services performed by a staff of up to 24 full-time employees and as many as 15 additional seasonal employees.

Project & Construction Management

The public works department, working together with the planning department, provides a wide variety of project and construction management services. This can range from contract administration; grant fund administration and reporting, construction management, and project permitting. We provide essential in-house services to tribal government and external services to community members including housing rehabilitation, facilities management, construction cost estimating, and general construction.
