Public Works Open House - May 18
The event kicks off National Public Works Week, which takes place this year from May 19-25, 2019. Public Works Week communicates the vital contribution public works professionals make every day to communities across the nation.
The Mount Prospect Public Works Department is responsible for many different services including the water and sewer system, solid waste services, snow plowing, tree maintenance, streets and sidewalks. The purpose of the Open House is to demonstrate the many essential responsibilities of the Public Works Department in a fun and entertaining way.
The Public Works Open House is a family-friendly event featuring prizes, a tour of the Public Works facility, rides in the department’s aerial trucks, a children’s Fun Fact Hunt, and a wide range of displays demonstrating how the Village’s water system, sewer system, parkway trees, buildings, streets, and vehicles are maintained. Additionally, kids can meet PW Paws, the Mount Prospect Public Works Department mascot. Refreshments will be provided by the Mount Prospect Lions Club.
