The Public Works Department serves our 7629 residents in the areas of streets, water, sewer, parks, motor pool and city owned facilities.  The Department has 11 employees to handle all these areas within the City.
We have over 30 miles of streets to plow, pave, crack seal, sweep and pothole patch, as well as 60 miles of pedestrian pathways to maintain.  We also maintain street signs, pavement markings, and repair curbs, and gutters.  We work closely with Consumer’s Energy to keep our streetlights in proper working order.
We purchase our drinking water from the City of Wyoming and maintain 2 water storage tanks, two booster stations, and miles of water main that supply City Water to our residents.
 Our Sanitary Sewer is sent to the City of Grandville’s Wastewater Treatment Plant via 10 sewer lift station
s that are operated and maintained by DPW staff.
 Our Storm Sewer system drains all our streets directly into Buttermilk Creek or the DeWeerd Drain, which feeds into Rush Creek then to the Grand River, and ultimately ends up in Lake Michigan.  The City of Hudsonville is part of the Lower Grand River Watershed and is actively involved in public education and cleaning up the streets and creeks so that we are sending the cleanest water possible on to the Grand River Watershed.

The City of Hudsonville is home to many wonderful parks, public spaces, and recreational opportunities. The park system includes picnic areas, ball diamonds, playgrounds, volleyball courts, basketball courts, frisbee golf, tot lots, picnic shelters, and a 76-acre Nature Center.
