This week, we’re recognizing the people in our very own Public Works Department who provide and maintain city infrastructure and maintenance services. A primary goal of the celebratory week includes educating the general public about the value and necessities of public works projects and to call attention to the importance of public works in community life.

Responsibilities include:

  • Maintenance of approximately 58 lane miles of City streets and parking lots
  • Removal of debris and snow, roadway sanding and sweeping, striping, pothole repair, crack-sealing, and signage
  • Fulfillment of local, State, and federal mandates for streets and right of ways

  • Maintenance of all park buildings and athletic fields
  • Maintenance of playground equipment, picnic facilities, and sport courts

With so many important responsibilities this team oversees, we think it’s fitting to create some space to celebrate this group. If you can, consider joining us at our event this Wednesday as we encourage residents to mingle with the Public Works staff, explore the big rigs, and enjoy a sweet treat.
