Public Works Departments across the country are coming together to celebrate the 63rd Annual National Public Works Week on May 21 – 27, 2023. This year’s theme, “Connecting the World Through Public Works", is recognizing that public works is the thread that connects us all, no matter where we live in the world. Every public works professional strives to improve the quality of life for the community they serve, leading to healthier, happier communities.
The "Connecting the World Through Public Works" theme highlights the way public works professionals connect us physically, through infrastructure, and inspirationally, through service to their communities, whether as first responders, or daily workers carrying out their duties with pride. It is in the public interest for the citizens, civic leaders and children in the City of Sheboygan to gain knowledge of and to maintain an ongoing interest and understanding of the importance of public works and public works programs in our community. For each day of NPWW the City of Sheboygan will be featuring a different division of the Public Works Department on social media, calling attention to the City’s public works professionals and their duties.
Public works connectors help keep communities strong by providing an infrastructure of services in transportation, water, wastewater, and stormwater treatment, public buildings and spaces, parks and grounds, emergency management and first response, solid waste, and right-of-way management. They are what make our communities great places to live and work. Join us in celebrating the quiet work these professionals do that makes life better for all of us.
