City of Farmington Hills Celebrates Public Works Week
Farmington Hills residents enjoy a high quality of life, thanks in large part to the public workers who make the city run smoothly every day.
The men and women who provide and maintain the infrastructure and services collectively known as Public Works are an integral part of the health, safety, and comfort in the daily lives of Farmington Hills residents.
The City of Farmington Hills is honoring those employees who are vital to the efficient operation of Public Works systems such as the water supply, sanitary sewers, roadways, public buildings and properties, signage, traffic control, solid waste collection, and recycling.
In accordance with the American Public Works Association, the city has set aside May 20-26 to celebrate National Public Works Week. The week was instituted as a public education campaign by the American Public Works Association in 1960 and is designed to call attention to the importance of Public Works in the daily lives of present and future generations.
“National Public Works Week gives the citizens of Farmington Hills a reminder to appreciate the excellent public services we have here in our City,” said Mayor Barry Brickner. “Our comfort depends upon the hard work of the dedicated professionals of the Public Services Department and the Special Services Department.”
