May 20-26 is also National Public Works Week

The Public Works Association of British Columbia (PWABC) is also seeking your support to recognize and promote National Public Works Week (NPWW) by acknowledging May 20-26, 2012 as National Public Works Week in your community. This year’s theme is “Public Works: Creating a Lasting Impression”

National Public Works Week is observed each year during the third full week of May and this is the 52nd year. NPWW calls attention to the importance of public works in community life and seeks to acknowledge the efforts of tens of thousands of men and women in North America who provide and maintain civil infrastructure and services. NPWW also allows Councils remind the public of the 24/7 services that they are responsible for and are proud of, and many make this an annual celebration in their communities.

Local governments are welcome to proclaim May 20-26, 2012 as Local Government Awareness Week and National Public Works Week.
