PROCLAMATION: National Public Works Week
May 16-22, 2021
since 1960, the third week in May has been celebrated as National Public Works Week. Municipalities across Canada use this week to educate, engage and inform the public about the essential role public works plays in the quality of life. The theme for 2021 is ‘Stronger Together’; and
public works professionals focus on infrastructure, facilities and services that are of vital importance to sustainable and resilient communities and to the public health, high quality of life and well-being of the people of Ontario; and
these infrastructure, facilities and services could not be provided without the dedicated efforts of public works professionals, who are engineers, managers and employees from provincial and municipal governments and the private sector, who are responsible for rebuilding, improving and protecting our nation’s transportation, water supply, water treatment and solid waste systems, public buildings, and other structures and facilities essential for our citizens; and
it is in the public interest for the citizens, civic leaders and children in Ontario to gain knowledge of and to maintain a progressive interest and understanding of the importance of public works and public works programs in their respective communities.
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED:
That His Worship Mayor Rob Keffer and Members of Council proclaim May 16-22, 2021 as NATIONAL PUBLIC WORKS WEEK in the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury.
