Lowndes County Board of Commissioners Recognize National Public Works Week
Lowndes County, Georgia: The Lowndes County Board of Commissioners is celebrating its Public Works staff during National Public Works Week happening May 16-22, 2021. National Public Works Week (NPWW) honors the staff who is responsible for maintaining over 810 miles of Lowndes County roads, 53 County owned facilities, vehicle management for more than 460 county vehicles, mosquito and litter control, road asphalt patching, signs and construction.
“Public Works Week is a time for us to thank each and every staff member from Public Works for their services,” said Lowndes County Manager Paige Dukes. “The hard work done by our 78 employees in Public Works is vital to the quality of life and well-being of the people of Lowndes County. Their dedicated efforts and hard work do not go unnoticed.”
Since 1960, American Public Works Association (APWA) has sponsored National Public Works Week across North America and Canada. NPWW assists in educating the public on the importance of public works to their daily lives and community. APWA is proud to announce "Stronger Together" as the theme for the 2021 National Public Works Week poster. This year's theme challenges each community to think about the role public works plays in creating a great place to live.
“Our jobs are rewarding, it’s always nice to look back and know that we successfully made a difference in our community and have the confidence to know it’s very much appreciated,” said Robin Cumbus Lowndes County Public Works Director.
