Yarmouth Celebrates National Public Works Week
Maine – In accordance with the tradition of the American Public Works Association, those who work in professions that provide and maintain public facilities and services will be recognized during National Public Works Week, May 21-27. Activities and programs scheduled just before and during this 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 American Public Works Association, sponsor of National Public Works Week. Our objective is designed to increase public awareness of their contributions as well as enlighten the public about their duties, practices, and goals of public works professionals.
Public works professionals include those who manage water, sewer, roads, bridges, 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.
