!!! City Closure!!!

   The City of West Sacramento will be closed due to the Coronavirus pandemic starting March 17, 2020 and lasting until further notice.  During this time Public Works will be observing a few changes in work flow to minimize exposure and still provide essential services.

  • If you are experiencing a Sewer, Roads, or Water emergency please call (916) 617-4850 as we will have a skeleton crew on hand for emergencies.
  • If you would like to rent a Hydrant Meter please call (916) 617-4850 before coming in so we can have the paperwork complete and waiting to minimize contact during this time.  Also, wearing a mask is required when coming in to retrieve or return the meter, otherwise we will need to facilitate the exchange through the door for staff safety.
  • Street Sweeping commenced 04/20/20 on a limited, reduced schedule.  Sweepers will be working their way through the City on no specifically designated routes at this time.   


  • During the closure we will NOT be doing the following:
    • Oil Drop-off
    • Receiving Vendors


     The City would like to thank you for your understanding during this emergency situation. We hope to be back to full capacity as early as safely possible.
