Date Range1991-1994DescriptionThis department was created after a re-organisation of the Works Department initiated in 1989 and implemented after the structuring that took effect in September 1991 and included Works infrastructure and planning, Traffic and transport planning and Works business units. By early 1992 the Division had seven directors and managers, with sections that included Technical services, Citiroads, Citidrainage.
Another restructuring took place in 1992, under General Manager, A F Stacey, to organise it along the lines of the products the division supplied to the people of Wellington rather than the professional groupings of staff. The aim was to be more customer-oriented and responsive to the needs of Wellingtonians. The sections covered customer services, transportation and traffic, roading, drainage and water, building and works. The department took responsibility for the provision of power, fuel and telecommunications to the city and drainage work was extended to include all waste liquids. Rubbish collection, beach cleansing and cleaning of public conveniences were taken over, on behalf of Culture & Recreation Division. Water services continued to be contracted to Wellington Regional Council.
In July 1992, the number of managers was reduced to six, with the divisions being Customer Services, Roading, Drainage and Water Supply, Transportation, Works, Chief Architect and one Project Manager for the Wellington Wastewater Treatment Project.
