WILLISTON, N.D. – In celebration of National Public Works Week scheduled for May 16-22, 2021, the City of Williston Public Works will host its Public Outreach Day on Wednesday, May 19.
Open to all ages, this free event will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Williston Public Works located at 1121 5th Street East, Williston, North Dakota.
City of Williston Public Works has celebrated Public Works Week since 2015, and 2021 marks the 61st annual National Public Works Week sponsored by the American Public Works and Canadian Public Works Associations.
Participants will have the opportunity to meet City of Williston Public Works staff, explore equipment up close, learn about projects and services, and walk away with goody bags.
“This is an important event for us because it showcases how critical Public Works is to the everyday function of our community,” explained Kenny Bergstrom, Public Works Director. “The services we offer can be commonly overlooked as these things are just a routine part of our lives. This week gives everyone in our department recognition and appreciation and provides the community a chance to see what it is we do.”
Participants are encouraged to wear masks and practice social distancing.
The media is welcome to attend!
