May 15 to 21 is National Public Works Week. Every year the number of participating municipalities continues to grow, which means the number of citizens who are exposed to the value of public works grows. This year’s theme is Ready and Resilient – highlighting the ability of public works professionals to perform regular duties and be ready at a moment’s notice to react as first responders during natural disasters and overcome trials seen in the field. New technologies and challenges are constantly shaping how public works operations are done. Over the next few years, residents will see changes in an effort to improve City services and prepare us for a greener future. As National Public Works Week wraps up, we’re recognizing all the hard work being done to manage and maintain our traffic and transportation infrastructure, parks and natural assets, waste, water and so much more – and we’re offering a sneak-peek at how Public Works is readying for the future.
