Public Works Week

Public Works Week
Posted on 05/15/2022
The City of New Hope recognizes the importance of public works personnel in maintaining the city’s infrastructure to provide a safe and healthy environment for the community. New Hope is following the nationwide campaign and proclaiming May 15-21, 2022, as National Public Works Week to honor the dedication and valuable contributions made by public works personnel.

Public Works Week is observed annually in the United States to recognize those who provide and maintain the infrastructure and services collectively known as public works. Public works personnel design, build, operate, maintain, and protect the transportation systems, water supply infrastructure, sewer systems, public buildings, parks, and other structures and facilities. Public works infrastructure, facilities and services play a pivotal role in the health, safety, and quality of life in communities throughout the country. In New Hope, public works personnel maintain and service nearly 65 miles of city streets, 630 miles of sidewalks, 65 miles of water mains, 716 fire hydrants, 75 miles of sanitary sewer pipes and 57 miles of storm sewer pipes. Public Works crews diligently ensure that they respond when needed, and often that need is outside of regular business hours. In addition to their usually scheduled work week, these crews often work throughout the night, on weekends and holidays to ensure the community’s infrastructure is safe and functional.

The City of New Hope extends a sincere message of appreciation to public works personnel for their dedication and commitment to the community. The city will be collecting notes of appreciation for New Hope Public Works as part of Public Works Week. Messages emailed to [email protected] will be shared with the department throughout the week.
