National Public Works Week 2021
The week of May 16-22, 2021, is National Public Works Week, and we here at the Town of Upper Marlboro would like to take this time to give a shout-out to our amazing Town Public Works staff who work hard to collect refuse, snow removal, litter pick-up, Town property maintenance, traffic control, landscaping, and overall make sure the Town is looking its best!
Be sure to check out these shots of our Public Work team in action, and what they do everyday.
From the American Public Works Association:
"APWA is proud to announce "Stronger Together" as the theme for the 2021 National Public Works Week poster. This year's exciting poster challenges our members and their citizens to think about the role public works plays in creating a great place to live. By working together, the impact citizens and public works professionals can have on their communities is magnified and results in the ability to accomplish goals once thought unattainable.
Public Works helps maintain a community's strength by working together to provide an infrastructure of services in transportation, water, wastewater, and stormwater treatment, public buildings and spaces, parks, and grounds, emergency management and first response, solid waste, and right-of-way management. Public Works provides togetherness needed for collaboration with all the stakeholders in capital projects, infrastructure solutions, and quality of life services." More info: https://npww.apwa.net/
