2018 Public Works Week is May 20 to 26

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 20 - 26, and the theme for this year is The Power of Public Works.

Show and Shine Event: May 23

This year we are pleased to invite residents to visit the South Operations Centre to join us for the fifth annual Show and Shine event. Join us on May 23 from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon 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.

When: Wednesday, May 23, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon
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.

Residents can catch the Special 66 bus for direct service to the South Operations Centre. The Special 66 bus operates between the Jubilee Centre terminal and the South Operations Centre from 9:30 a.m. – 4:45 p.m.
