It’s Public Works Week in Carrboro, as proclaimed by Mayor Lydia Lavelle.
“Despite the unprecedented challenges imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, our public works professionals continue to perform the myriad essential services that allow our Town to function,” Mayor Lavelle said. “I urge all citizens to pay tribute to our public works employees and to recognize the vital contributions they make to protecting our health, safety, and quality of life.”
These infrastructure, facilities, and services could not be provided without the dedicated efforts of all public works employees, who are responsible for planning, improving, and protecting our Town’s vehicles, transportation system, stormwater management system, construction projects, solid waste system, public buildings, parks, greenways, cemeteries, and other structures and facilities essential for our citizens, Mayor Lavelle said.
2021 marks the 61st annual National Public Works Week sponsored by the American Public Works Association and the Canadian Public Works Association. The theme of this year’s Public Works Week is “Stronger Together.”
