PAINT CITY SNOW PLOWS, ENJOY FOOD, MUSIC & LEARN ABOUT CITY PROJECTS
Commerce City is joining communities nationwide this month to recognize National Public Works Week (NPWW) May 17-23, 2015. Due to the essential nature of public works service, the theme for this year’s celebration is “Community Begins Here.” Whether it is maintaining roads and bridges, plowing snow, or managing the many construction projects taking place in Commerce City, the public works department is an integral part of how our city functions.
“Our public works employees are the unsung heroes of the community,” said Maria D’Andrea, director of public works. “They are critical in carrying out our city’s mission by planning, building, managing and operating the heart of our community.”Since community begins with public works, the department is celebrating NPWW with an open house, encouraging residents to take a tour of the facility, paint city snow plows, see how signs are made, hop into one of our trucks and learn about how the public works department serves Commerce City. Come down to the Municipal Services Center (8602 Rosemary St.) anytime from 4 – 8 p.m. Tuesday, May 19, 2015.
