National Public Works Week
Governor Ned Lamont signed an official proclamation declaring the week of May 21 – 27, 2023, as National Public Works Week in Connecticut! The proclamation encourages Connecticut’s residents “to pay tribute to our public works professionals, engineers, managers, and employees – to recognize the substantial contributions they make to protecting our national health, safety, and quality of life."
The Town of Greenwich Department of Public Works staff tirelessly work behind the scenes every day to provide essential services that contribute to our community’s health, safety, comfort, and quality of life. The department is comprised of six divisions (Engineering, Building Construction & Maintenance, Building Inspection, Highway, Sewer, and Waste Disposal) which are responsible for ensuring critical infrastructure that keeps the Town of Greenwich safe and running is always maintained and operating properly. The week-long observation celebrates the ability of these professionals to perform regular public works duties and be ready at a moment’s notice to react as first responders during inclement weather events and natural disasters and overcome trials seen in the field.
Fill-A-Public Works Truck Food Drive
In conjunction with Public Works Week, the Department is hosting Fill-A-Public Works Truck Food Drive to collect food and household provisions to support Neighbor to Neighbor. During the month of May, residents can donate food and household goods in one of our “trucks” in the Town Hall lobby or contribute to the online campaign through the dedicated website, which can be found HERE.
