Maintenance workers provide the daily upkeep of structures and locations. They do simple repairs to bridges, buildings, docks, statues, and general use public places. These things can include:
- Filling pot holes in public roads and spaces
- Clearing fallen trees, dirt, and rock from roads
- Repairing cracks in cement on statues and structures
- Fixing leaks
- Replacing rotted out wood boards and pillars
- Cleaning out ash and debris from public fire pits rebuilding them if necessary
- Repair and replace fencing
