National Public Works Week (May 17 through 23, 2020)
The Public Works Department plays a significant role in our daily lives, such as ensuring the roads are ready to use and water is of the highest quality and safe to drink. The department is responsible for construction, maintenance, and repair of the City’s infrastructure and grounds/facilities (i.e., repairing a streetlight, filling a pothole, trimming a parkway tree, replacing damaged sidewalk); and street, water, and sewer related emergency service (i.e., water main breaks).
APWA Fill-A-Truck Food Drive
As an effort to give back to the community, the Warrenville Public Works Department participated in APWA’s Fill A Truck Food Drive. During the week of May 17 to 23, the department collected food donations and household provisions for local community food banks.
Thank you all for your support!
Learn A Little More About Public Works on Facebook
During Public Works Week, on the City of Warrenville’s Facebook page, information, photos, and video were posted on department operations and a few recent projects to offer a glimpse into the work of the Public Works.
On Wednesday, May 20th, to celebrate and bring awareness of National Public Works Week, a parade featuring the City’s Public Works staff and fleet traveled throughout the city. For past years, the department held an open house to the public, but due to COVID-19, canceled the event to protect the health of the community. Parade attendees were asked to practice social distancing by keeping at least 6 feet away from others, and wear a face mask when appropriate.
