Stronger Together

This year’s Public Works Week theme – Stronger Together – speaks to the role public works plays in creating a great place to live. Public Works provides togetherness needed for collaboration when working on capital projects, infrastructure solutions, and delivering quality of life services.

The city’s Public Works Division provides waste collection services and maintains and improves city infrastructure including streets and sidewalks, parks, trails and public spaces, the sewer, water and drainage system and the city fleet.

This year’s online celebration is being held in lieu of the annual open house as part of the city’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
