National Public Works Week Celebrates Communities like Fox Creek, Alberta —In accordance with the tradition of the Canadian Public Works Association, those who work in professions that provide and maintain public facilities and services will be honoured during National Public Works Week, May 19-25, 2019. Activities and programs scheduled for the week will celebrate the contributions of public works professionals as well as the communities they serve.
We value our communities and the role public works professionals play in keeping them safe and functioning smoothly, reports the Canadian Public Works Association, sponsor of National Public Works Week. Our objective is designed to increase public awareness of their contributions as well as to enlighten the public about the duties, practices, and goals of public works professionals.
Public works professionals include those who manage water, sewer, public transportation, and refuse removal systems as well as those responsible for maintaining public buildings and grounds. They are, in short, the people who maintain and improve the systems and services vital to a community’s health, safety and comfort.
Local activities scheduled for National Public Works Week include Bulky Items Pick-Ups, Tours of the new Water Treatment Plant, and Equipment Display Tours. The Town of Fox Creek can provide additional information and can be reached at 780-622-3896.
