Celebrate National Public Works Week
(May 14, 2013)
We are fortunate to have clean water, well maintained streets, efficiently moving traffic and a clean community. Every year, these efforts are recognized during National Public Works Week, which is celebrated May 19-25. Westminster’s Public Works and Utilities employees will be recognized throughout the week for their dedication and commitment to ensure quality services are provided for the community.
Employees will volunteer at the 10th Annual Water Festival on Wednesday, May 15, at Front Range Community College, 3645 W. 112th Ave. This festival brings more than 1,000 fifth-grade students from Westminster, Thornton and Northglenn together for a four-hour educational, hands-on program about water resources, treatment and delivery.
During the week, the public is invited to visit Westminster City Hall, 4800 W. 92nd Ave., for a look at various models that display the responsibilities of the Department of Public Works and Utilities. While visiting the display, sign up for door prizes, including a chance to win a Westminster street sign personalized with your name.
The American Public Works Association has sponsored National Public Works Week since 1960. Across the nation, 29,000 members use this week to educate the public on the importance of the contribution of public works to their daily lives.
