Board of Douglas County Commissioners honors Public Works professionals that connect us all through infrastructure

May 21-27, 2023, is National Public Works Week in Douglas County

Posted on May 23, 2023 2023Breaking News



As you drive to work, take a walk with your kids, or ride your bike along the trail, you may not be thinking about all the ways public infrastructure connects us. But it’s the work of public works professionals that keeps us safe on the roads, ensures our rainwater drains where it should, and keeps our buildings safe.

To recognize the dedication and professionalism of our public works employees, the Board of Douglas County Commissioners passed a resolution Tuesday, May 23, declaring May 21-27, 2023, as Public Works Week in Douglas County.

“We know our citizens want safe and open roads that make it easy to get around Douglas County,” said Commissioner George Teal. “That’s why we invested nearly 50% of the County budget this year into transportation. But it’s our public works professionals who turn that investment into a safe and multimodal transportation network that benefits us all.”

From designing, building and repairing roads, to snow removal, water quality monitoring, and maintaining public structures and facilities, these dedicated employees are committed to protecting our health, safety and quality of life.

This year, the national theme is “Connecting the World through Public Works” to honor the ways public works connects us all through infrastructure and service, enhancing the quality of life for the communities these professionals serve.

This summer, you’ll see many of our public works employees out on the road for annual maintenance and construction, which protects our shared investment in public infrastructure. Please slow down, drop the distraction and watch for crews.
