Although we are a very small community, we do have the customary operating departments, providing a full-service town government for our residents:
Administration – Oversees all the paperwork that any organization produces, and responds to a plethora of mandated paperwork from state and federal agencies; manages the annual budgets in our three operating Funds, as well two Fiduciary Funds; manages all personnel paperwork, from payroll to insurances to retirement.
Police – Conducts law enforcement activities throughout town, to include general patrol, traffic control, crime detection and prevention, and public relations; provides mutual aid to surrounding agencies
Fire Department – The Pikeville-Pleasant Grove VFD is a fully-staffed and -equipped regional volunteer fire department
Public Works – Provides for roads, grounds, and rights of way maintenance as well as parks and recreation facility upkeep; ensures sanitation services, including garbage collection, recycling services, and yard trash; maintains the Town cemetery.
Library – The local branch of the Wayne County Library is a well-stocked and busy facility, serving hundreds every month.
Utilities – Ensures that the Town is supplied with adequate, safe drinking water; that wastewater is effectively carried away and treated; and that the Town’s electric grid provides a reliable flow of electricity to residents and businesses. All three utilities are offered to out-of town as well as in-town customers.
