Meet City Staff

In early May is Public Service Recognition Week, a national movement that shows appreciation to local, state, federal and other government employees and delivers messages about the value of public service to our communities.

We like to feature some of our own employees during this week, so that our neighbors can meet them and learn more about the jobs we all do to serve our Battle Creek Community.

Allow us to introduce some of the members of Team Battle Creek!

Heather Davis DPW

Meet Heather Davis! She's a customer service representative at our Department of Public Works. She generally works for Field Services, but says, "I don't like to be bored!" so helps with a variety of needs in all Public Works divisions.

You probably will speak to Heather on the phone, if you call about a pothole, your mailbox knocked over, or other issue. As her title indicates, Heather's main focus is helping neighbors with their public works-related needs.

She also handles payroll for many of our DPW divisions, helps with environmental/recycling events, handles uniform paperwork, orders office supplies, takes minutes for a couple boards, creates work orders for traffic signs, handles Fleet's fuel report, and more!

Heather has worked with us full-time since Halloween 2016, but temped for nearly a year prior, both at Transit and DPW.
