Buckeye celebrates Public Works Week

Post Date:05/15/2018 2:46 pm
Buckeye Public Works staff visited Marionneaux Elementary School on May 14 to showcase the important ways their vital work impacts and improves our community every day.  Students in line looking at heavy equipment

Students from kindergarten through fourth grade were able to climb on some heavy equipment, learn to fix water leaks with hands-on demonstrations and ask questions about the variety of services the city provides and careers available in the public works field.

Professionals from street maintenance, facilities, engineering, trash, recycling, water, sewer and construction spent the morning giving students an up-close look at the work it takes to keep their city clean, beautiful and operating smoothly.  

All of the duties these different departments provide to residents are vital to their health, safety, comfort and quality of life. 

National Public Works Week is designed to connect with local communities to increase awareness of all the contributions public works professionals provide to residents every day. It’s sponsored and created by the American Public Works Association.
