Wheatland County Council proudly proclaims its official recognition of National Public Works Week, which shall be celebrated from May 21 to May 27, 2023, throughout Wheatland County. We extend our utmost gratitude to the dedicated public works employees who tirelessly contribute to the betterment and upkeep of our beloved community. Their unwavering commitment is truly commendable and instrumental in ensuring the well-being and prosperity of our residents.
APWA is proud to announce the theme “Connecting the World Through Public Works” for the 2023 National Public Works Week poster. Public works is the thread that connects us all, no matter where we live in the world. Every public works professional strives to improve the quality of life for the community they serve, leading to healthier, happier communities.
The “Connecting the World Through Public Works” theme highlights the way public works professionals connect us physically, through infrastructure, and inspirationally, through service to their communities, whether as first responders, or daily workers carrying out their duties with pride.
Public works connectors help keep communities strong by providing an infrastructure of services in transportation, water, wastewater, and stormwater treatment, public buildings and spaces, parks and grounds, emergency management and first response, solid waste, and right-of-way management. They are what make our communities great places to live and work. Join us in celebrating the quiet work these professionals do that makes life better for all of us.
Every year National Public Works Week gets bigger and better. The number of participating municipalities continues to grow, which means the number of citizens who are exposed to the value of public works grows. At APWA one of our main goals is to educate the public about the value and necessities of public works projects throughout North America, and public works professionals like you are our best ambassadors.
Since 1960, APWA has sponsored National Public Works Week. Across North America, our more than 29,000 members in the U.S. and Canada use this week to energize and educate the public on the importance of public works to their daily lives: planning, building, managing and operating at the heart of their local communities to improve everyday quality of life.
