Our Mission

The Maintenance Department is committed to preserving the culture and enhancing the quality of life for Tribal Members, Visitors, and Employees.

We strive to provide timely professional services through teamwork, pride and self-esteem. With the knowledge and capabilities that we have, we are prepared to offer unlimited maintenance services: by creating, designing, maintaining, building, repairing, collecting, removing, and responding to any other problems or emergencies.

We also have our Custodial division that consists of four hard-working and dedicated employees who provide services to the folks who work in all of the Government buildings on the Santa Rosa Rancheria. They also move and assemble furniture, hang pictures and plaques on walls, make minor repairs as needed such as replacing the all of the lamp bulbs in the lights in various buildings.

These workers also setup and cleanup after department functions. Besides keeping the main rotunda of the Admin building spic and span, they keep all of the carpets and other floor surfaces in a clean and safe condition. All glass surfaces inside and out are cleaned on a regular basis.

We believe that the Maintenance Department employees are a vital resource and through them will our mission be accomplished. We support one another with dignity, respect, concern, and take pride in our work.
