2015 Public Works Week
Since 1960, APWA (American Public Works Association) has sponsored National Public Works Week. This week is used to energize and educate the public on the importance of the contribution of public works to our daily lives: planning, building, managing and operating the heart of our local communities and building the quality of life.
APWA has selected “Community Begins Here. . .” as its theme for the 2015 National Public Works Week, which will be celebrated May 17-23. The theme is about the quality of life brought to communities around the world. We are able to have clean water, safe streets and neighborhoods, efficient traffic, and safe, clean communities because of Public Works.
In observance of Public Works Week, The Chippewa River District Library along with the City of Mt. Pleasant Division of Public Works will have heavy equipment, play stations, and refreshments available at the Public Works building, at 1303 N. Franklin Street, on, May 18, 2015, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. This event is open to the public. Call DPW at (989) 779-5401 if you need more information.
