Mission Statement
It is our goal to continue to maintain the unique beauty and charm that Camden is historically known for.  To maintain the quality of life that the residents have come to know, by maintaining the roads, sidewalks and other infrastructure that the Public Works Department is responsible for.  We will help keep the title of “Tree City” and maintain a healthy canopy of street shade trees for future generations to enjoy.
