The Laurens County Department of Public Works is a multi-function department that is considered the “hub” of various other county maintenance departments. Under the direction of the Public Works Director, the following Departments, with their respective Supervisors, work hand in hand towards many public services.

Laurens County does not have an Engineering Department per say. All engineering and administrative assignments of complex natures are assigned to the Public Works Department. The Public Works Department is basically responsible for the preparation of technical specifications for public improvements and the inspection of work on public road construction projects. The Public Works Department also interprets county subdivision regulations and assists in the review of preliminary and final plans submitted by developers.
