The City of Perry will be celebrating National Public Works Week the week of May 18, 2015.
National Public Works Week (NPWW) is a celebration of the tens of thousands of men and women in North America who provide and maintain the infrastructure and services collectively known as public works.
Instituted as a public education campaign by the American Public Works Association (APWA) in 1960, NPWW calls attention to the importance of public works in community life. The week seeks to enhance the prestige of the often-unsung heroes of our society-the professionals who serve the public good every day with quiet dedication.
This year’s theme “Community Begins Here” speaks to the essential nature of Public Works services in support of everyday quality of life.
