While most people associate the public service department with basic township building maintenance, the Delhi Charter Township Public Services department does much more. Director of Public Services Sandra Diorka said that the department does take care of the usual public maintenance such as maintaining cemetery grounds, putting up holiday decorations and maintaining streetscapes. Diorka said that the department runs some more unusual programs such as the recycling center and taking care of the community gardens owned by the township. The department also sponsors programs that benefit the community like the 50/50 tree program. Diorka says this program was started to get more street trees in the township.
