May 21-27 is Public Works Week
Posted on 05/25/2023
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 21-27, 2023, as National Public Works Week to honor public works personnel's dedication and valuable contributions.

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 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 community health, safety, and quality of life. 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, ensuring the community's infrastructure is safe and functional.

The City of New Hope sincerely expresses appreciation to public works personnel for their dedication and commitment to the community.
