2019 Public Works Week is May 19 to 25

It’s that time of year again when we recognize and celebrate the efforts and expertise of Public Works professionals. We’re ramping up for Public Works Week from May 19 - 25, and the theme for this year is Public Works: It Starts Here!

Show and Shine Event: May 22

This year we are pleased to invite residents to visit the South Operations Centre to join us for the fifth annual Show n' Shine event. Join us on May 22 from 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. to see public works equipment firsthand and meet the professionals that form the backbone of our communities.

Public Works, Transit, Environmental Services and Regional Emergency Services staff will be on hand to demonstrate equipment, answer questions and explain the services they provide to the region.

Free Shuttle Service 

Free shuttle service will be provided from the Main Street terminal to the South Operations Centre to residents attending the Show n’ Shine event. The first shuttle will depart at 9:15 a.m. from the Main Street terminal and continue to pick up residents from the terminal every 45 minutes with the last shuttle leaving at 3:15 p.m. from the Main Street terminal and 3:40 p.m. from the South Operations Centre. Residents are encouraged to take the free shuttle service, as parking is limited at the South Operations Centre. 

Stuff-A-Bus for the Wood Buffalo Food Bank

This year, the Show n’ Shine event is growing with more programs and demonstrations. In addition, we’re encouraging participants to bring non-perishable food donations to support residents in need throughout the region. 

If you are coming to the Show n’ Shine event on May 22, you are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item for donation. All donations will be stuffed into a Transit bus as part of the Stuff-A-Bus program. At the end of the day, all donations will be delivered to the Wood Buffalo Food Bank.

When: Wednesday, May 22, 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Where: South Operations Centre, 140 Saprae Creek Trail

Everyone is welcome! We’ll be showcasing various types of  equipment including snow plows, refuse and recycling trucks, buses, loaders, graders, sweepers, parks equipment and fire trucks. There will also be a live-on-location radio broadcast and much more.

International Public Works Week

Since 1960, public works teams from across North America have been recognizing Public Works Week as a means of celebrating public works and educating people about the importance of public works for everyone, including safety, planning, building, managing and operating our communities and keeping residents connected.
