National Public Works Week – May 2021
This week, May 16 – May 22, we are celebrating the 61st annual National Public Works Week to honor our Public Works Department which does so much to help keep our Colchester community running smoothly. This year’s theme is “Stronger Together,” which highlights the role between Public Works and citizens to work together to make our community a great place to live.
Public Works consists of managers, engineers, and highly trained operational staff who help maintain a community’s strength by working together to provide services and implement capital projects relating to roads, bridges, sidewalks and paths, wastewater and stormwater treatment, public buildings and spaces, and the maintenance of vehicles and equipment for our fire, rescue, technical rescue, and police departments. Public Works strives to improve the overall quality of life for our citizens through the development of sustainable and resilient infrastructure, and the care and preservation of our community’s natural resources.
We appreciate the year-around maintenance and around the clock repairs, especially those provided in the winter by our Public Works employees across the town.
Please join us in thanking our Public Works Department for its dedicated service to our town.
