National Public Works Week is May 21 to May 27 and the City of Council Bluffs is celebrating with an Open House on Sunday, May 21 from 12 – 3:00 p.m. at Public Works Operations, 1001 10th Ave in Council Bluffs. This interactive event gives the community an opportunity to experience Public Works first hand, learn about current projects, and meet the staff.
Bring the kids! There will be lots of fun stuff to do, like painting an actual snowplow, a chance to climb in the equipment, and a crosswalk will be set up to teach kids how to cross the street safely. Families can tour the facilities, learn how brine is made, and get a better understanding of what Public Works does for our community. At 1:00 p.m. Mayor Walsh will present the Public Works Week Proclamation. We will have food and drink too! And, have your camera ready, there’s sure to be some great photo ops!
