[ARCHIVED] National Public Works Week 2022


Please join the West U Public Work’s Department in celebrating our always “ready & resilient” Public Works employees!

Public Works helps maintain a community’s strength by working together to provide an infrastructure of services in transportation, water, wastewater, storm water treatment, facility maintenance, emergency management and first response, solid waste, and right-of-way management. Public Works provides togetherness needed for collaboration with all the stakeholders in capital projects, infrastructure solutions, and quality of life services.

Residents can show appreciation in many ways but West U has come up with a few ideas of how you can show your support!
