Rockville will join the American Public Works Association to celebrate National Public Works Week from May 18 through May 22.

The highlight of the week will be the annual Equipment Show from 11 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Thursday, May 21 at the outdoor pool parking lot at the Rockville Swim and Fitness Center, 355 Martins Lane. Kids — and kids at heart — will be able to climb into the operator’s seat of some of the big trucks used by the City’s Department of Public Works.

The free show includes balloons, popcorn, coloring books and other giveaways, and the chance to meet some of the public works employees who provide important services that keep Rockville running.

APWA first sponsored National Public Works Week in 1960. Today, more than 28,000 APWA members in the U.S. and Canada use the week to energize and educate the public about the important contributions of public works, including planning, building, managing and operating infrastructure and services in our communities.

This year’s National Public Works Week theme is “Community Begins Here.” The theme represents the idea that quality public works build the foundation for a community and support everyday quality of life.

Rockville’s Department of Public Works provides for the effective and efficient design, acquisition, construction, operation, maintenance, inspection and renewal of the city’s infrastructure to provide sustainable transportation, water, wastewater and stormwater management, recycling and refuse, fleet services and environmental management.
