National Public Works Week is May 16-22
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – The City of Melbourne will join public agencies across the country in celebrating the dedication and contributions of public works and utility professionals during National Public Works Week, May 16-22.
Public works professionals are engineers, managers, and employees at all levels of government and the private sector who rebuild, improve and protect our nation’s transportation, water supply, water treatment, and solid waste systems, public buildings, and other essential structures, facilities, and fleets.
The 204 employees of the City of Melbourne Public Works and Utilities Department work hard each and every day to provide the services that keep our community functioning, including drinking water production and distribution, wastewater collection and treatment, reclaimed water distribution, streets, and stormwater management, facilities and fleet.
Since 1960, the American Public Works Association has sponsored National Public Works Week in order to energize and educate the public on the importance of public works to their daily lives.
National Public Works Week is a great time to learn more about the many essential services that public works and utility professionals provide our community and to thank these dedicated employees for their commitment and hard work.
