National Public Works Week

National Public Works Week

May 17-23, 2020

Public Works professionals focus on infrastructure, facilities and services that are vitally important to sustainable and resilient communities and to the public health, high quality of life and well-being of people. These infrastructures, facilities and services could not be provided without the dedicated efforts of public works professionals, who are managers and employees at all levels of government and the private sector, who are responsible for rebuilding, improving and protecting our nation’s transportation, water supply, water treatment and solid waste systems, public buildings and other structures and facilities essential for our citizens.

It is in the public interest for the citizens, civic leaders and children in City of New Port Richey to gain knowledge of and to maintain a progressive interest and understanding of the importance of public works and public works programs in their respective communities. The year 2020 marks the 60th annual National Public Works Week sponsored by the American Public Work Association (APWA).

Historically APWA urged citizens to join in on activities, events and ceremonies designed to pay tribute to public works professionals to recognize the substantial contributions they make to protect our national health, safety, and quality of life. While we can’t have events and ceremonies this year, we ask you to have you and your children gain the knowledge of Public Works by watching this short “What is Public Works” video, color a “Rhythm of Public Works” coloring sheet, and mail them to our facility for posting at our building for all our Public Works employees to see!

Completed sheets can delivered multiple ways:

  • Mail directly to Public Works Department at 6132 Pine Hill Road, Port Richey, FL 34668
  • Mail with your Utility Bill
  • Take a Photo and post it to the City’s Facebook Page using the hashtag #NPRPublicWorksRocks
  • Drop off at the Drive-Thru at City Hall
  • Drop in the Library dropbox located at City Hall.
    • If you choose this option be sure to put it in a manila envelope with something hard to be protected.

We can’t wait to see!
