City Utility/Sewer Maintenance


Welcome to the City of Sullivan's Utility/Sewer Maintenance Department.

First and foremost we want to express our appreciation to our Sullivan Utility Department members for accomplishing their jobs in such a way that we hardly need to think about sewer problems at all. Sullivan is fortunate to have this dedicated staff in our City.







Tony Burkhart is the Superintendent of our Utility Department and his position is appointed by the Mayor. Tony maintains our sanitary sewer system, including services for storm water and disposal services.
