REGION TO CELEBRATE NATIONAL PUBLIC WORKS WEEK
(Brampton) - The Region of Peel has proclaimed the week of May 20 to May 26, 2001 Public Works Week. This year's theme is "Working In The Public Interest."
The Region of Peel's Public Works department provides a vast array of essential services to the public. The purpose of Public Works Week is to inform residents about how Public Works contributes to improve the quality of life for all citizens in the Region of Peel. In addition, Public Works Week is held to acknowledge and congratulate Public Works employees for the work they do.
"Public Works employees and services are a vital part of our community," said Mitch Zamojc, Commissioner of Public Works at the Region of Peel. "The services we provide affect residents' lives every day, from the roads they drive on, to the water they drink, to the waste they dispose of."
In order to promote an understanding and appreciation of the role the Public Works department plays in the community, the Region of Peel will host a number of events throughout Public Works Week, including school tours of the Public Works facilities. The Grand Finale will be a barbecue and Open House for residents and staff on Saturday, May 26, at the Region's Headquarters, 10 Peel Centre Dr., Brampton.
