The Development Division provides the services that a (responsible/responsive government) provides to its community. These services (Public works services), accomplished day-by-day are so much a part of life and the (Quality of living), they are sometimes taken for granted.  Only in their absence, only in the break in their continuity are they are suddenly missed.   


The Development Division of the Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin provides services that are (on the outside) split between Federal, State and Local, governments. The common element is that we exist to serve public need. Water lines are built to provide safe, plentiful water for homes and businesses while providing fire hydrants to protect those same buildings.  Sewer lines and treatment facilities are built for the protection of public health.  Stormwater installations are designed to protect the public from flooding and damage caused by the increased flows from urbanization.   


The biggest part of the Development Division is the Operations Branch (Public Works Departments).   In the past few years, the workload has increased immensely.  To see the updated list of responsibilities, click on highlighted Operations Report.
