Wednesday is Public Works Day! Come Celebrate at Memorial Park


This week has been designated as National Public Works Week and tomorrow, May 22nd, the City of Susanville’s Public Works team will be celebrating with a special day in the park where everyone can get to know about what the department does, participate in fun activities and maybe win some cool prizes.

From 2:00 to 4:00p.m., the nice folks from the Street, Natural Gas, Parks, Building, Planning and Engineering departments will have booths set up with information about their services and neat games and raffles where you can win passes to the Honey Lake Valley Community Pool.

Sno Mountain Shaved Ice will be at the park selling their delicious eats and unique treats.

Kids can even help decorate some of the department’s heavy equipment.

What does our Public Works Department, headed by Public Works Director Rob Godman, do for the community? A lot of really important stuff! They maintain and improve the condition of our street and alley system, they keep our drainage ways open and free of debris, they maintain traffic signs and pavement markings, provide safe and reliable public water and natural gas, provide a local municipal airport and take on major projects across the town.

National Public Works Week has been around since 1960, and across North America, more than 30,000 members of the American Public Works Association 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.”
