City Council Regular
Meeting Date: 05/01/2018  
Subject:    National Public Works Week Proclamation
Submitted For: Tim Himmer From: Sarah Greene, Administrative Assistant II

INTRODUCTION
Council is asked to recognize our outstanding Public Works staff as we approach National Public Works Week, May 20 through 26, 2018.
DISCUSSION
Since 1960, the American Public Works Association (APWA) has sponsored National Public Works Week. Across North America, more than 30,000 members in the US and Canada use this week to energize and educate the public on the importance of the contribution of public works to their daily lives: planning, building, managing and operating the infrastructure within our local communities and improving the quality of life.

This year's theme, "The Power of Public Works," gives voice to the impact the many facets of public works have on modern civilization. From providing clean water to disposing of solid waste, to building roads and bridges or planning for and implementing mass transit, to removing snow on roadways or devising emergency management strategies to meet natural or manmade disasters, public works services play a vital role in maintaining society’s quality of life.

Council and staff are asked to recognize our Public Works staff for their hard work and contributions to the City of Coon Rapids.  Staff would also like to invite the public to an open house to be held on Saturday, May 12.  The event will occur at the Public Works facility located at 1831 111th Avenue NW from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
RECOMMENDATION
Staff requests the Mayor read the Proclamation into the record, and invite the public to the May 12th open house event.
