The Department of Municipal Affairs and Environment strives to ensure that residents live in safe and sustainable communities and are served by open, effective and accountable local governments. We assist municipalities in meeting their infrastructure needs and help provide the financial and administrative tools to support development of community capacity, regional cooperation, and sound governance.
We work to support environmental protection and enhancement through implementing water resource and pollution prevention regulations and policies, and coordination of environmental impact assessments.
The department is responsible for emergency preparedness and emergency response, planning and training, and it leads the coordination and delivery of fire protection and fire prevention services.
