May 21-27 is ‘National Public Works Week’ in Whatcom County

Whatcom County Public Works is celebrating National Public Works Week, May 21-27, 2023. The week recognizes those working in professions that provide and maintain the vital infrastructure and services collectively known as public works. Over the week, work from across the department will be featured, including the Engineering, Maintenance & Operations, Natural Resources, Stormwater, and Ferry divisions.

This year’s National Public Works Week theme is ‘Connecting the World Thru Public Works.’ It highlights how 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.

As part of the week’s recognition, Whatcom County Executive Satpal Sidhu signed a proclamation declaring May 21-27, 2023, as ‘National Public Works Week’ in Whatcom County.

Be sure to follow Whatcom County Public Works on social media to see some of the highlights over the course of the week:
