The MARGATE PUBLIC WORKS ROADS DIVISION is responsible for the maintenance and care of all City-owned Rights-of-way. A right-of-way is the complete area from back of sidewalk on one side of the street to back of sidewalk on the opposite side of the street. City roadways include all interior streets and some of the main thoroughfares which dissect the City (approximately 110 centerline miles).
As well, we maintain all pedestrian sidewalks throughout the City. With many trees planted close to the sidewalks, we do encounter lifting and movement of the concrete sidewalks and we are constantly on the lookout for tripping hazards which do occur from time to time.
Problems with any City roads or sidewalks i.e. potholes, sinkholes, tripping hazards and the like, should be called in to the Margate Public Works Department at 954-972-8126 for repair.
