Carrollton Honors Public Works First Responders
The City of Carrollton joins the American Public Works Association (APWA) and communities from across the nation to honor those who work in professions that provide and maintain public streets, facilities, and services during National Public Works Week, May 17-23. Public Works plays a vital role in the well-being of the Carrollton community by maintaining and improving the systems and services crucial to the residents’ health, safety, and comfort.
“The City of Carrollton values our community and the role our Public Works’ crews play in keeping them safe and functioning smoothly especially during times of crisis,” said Public Works Director Jody Byerly. “The Department’s goals during this celebratory week are to increase public awareness of the crews’ contributions as well as to enlighten the public about the duties, practices, and goals of these public works professionals.”
This year’s theme “The Rhythm of Public Works” challenges citizens to think about their communities as a symphony of essential services, working in concert to create a great place to live. Every community has a rhythm, a heartbeat that reflects its essence and tempo of life.
Public Works keeps a community's rhythm moving by providing an orchestra of infrastructure services including professionals who manage water, sewer, public transportation, and waste removal as well as those responsible for maintaining public buildings and grounds. Streets, roads, bridges, and public transportation keep residents linked together from driveway to highway, and clean water and sanitation services keep the City healthy. Public works provides the harmony needed for collaboration with all the stakeholders in capital projects, infrastructure solutions, and quality of life services to assure a higher quality of life for the community.
Let public works friends, neighbors, and service providers know their service to the City of Carrollton is appreciated.
