May 16-22, 2021 is National Public Works Week. This year, the theme, “Stronger Together,” celebrates the role public works plays in creating a great place to live. By working together, the impact citizens and public works professionals can have on their communities is magnified and creates strength for the ability to accomplish goals.
Public works maintains a community’s strength by working together to provide an infrastructure of services in transportation, water, wastewater, stormwater, public buildings and spaces, solid waste, fleet maintenance, and emergency management and first response. Public works provides togetherness needed for collaboration with all stakeholders in capital projects, infrastructure solutions, and quality of life services.
Concord General Services performs these public works services year-round for the City of Concord. The services provided and enjoyed by the community together make Concord the healthy and beautiful city that it is. Together, the community and public works professionals work to create and consistently maintain the quality of life Concord now enjoys.
National Public Works Week is a great opportunity to learn more about your local public works department and celebrate the importance of public works services. Learn more at www.concordnh.gov/generalservices.
