Mayor Shane Blaser has signed a proclamation for Public Works Week.
Public Works Week is celebrated to recognize and raise awareness about the importance of public works in communities. It is typically observed during the third week of May.
Public works refer to the infrastructure and services provided by government agencies and organizations that contribute to the well-being and quality of life for citizens. This includes a wide range of essential services such as road construction and maintenance, water and wastewater management, public transportation, parks and recreation facilities, solid waste management, and more.
