Department of Public Works
Welcome to New Castle! Working for the Town of New Castle has been very interesting, challenging at times, but overall very rewarding. For over 30 years, I have had the pleasure of working with a couple of dozen elected officials who have been very professional and supportive by providing the necessary funds to maintain the quality of life in Town. For example, over 20 years ago, several consecutive town boards enabled us to build our Award Winning, State of the Art Millwood Water Treatment Plant. This provides our residents with the best quality water in New York State.
