The Columbus Department of Public Service provides a variety of basic services to residents of the City of Columbus, including trash collection, parking management and enforcement, snow removal, and pothole patching. The Department also maintains roadways, supervises design of street improvements and street resurfacing, oversees construction of wheelchair ramps, guides installation of sidewalks near elementary schools in Columbus, and inspects public and private construction projects. 
Installation of street signs and signals, selection of traffic-calming measures, and implementation of other traffic engineering projects also fall to the Service Department.
