The week of May 19 through May 25 is National Public Works Week as declared by the American Public Works Association. Kingsport Public Works professionals will be on hand on Friday, May 24, for the popular Public Works Day event.

Public Works professionals are, in short, the people who maintain and improve the systems and services vital to a community’s health, safety and comfort. At the event, Public Works experts will demonstrate the work of those who plan, manage, and maintain the city’s essential infrastructure, including water, sewer, solid waste collection, maintenance of public buildings and transportation networks.

“We have an extraordinary group of employees who are dedicated to serving the taxpayers of Kingsport,” said Public Works Director Ryan McReynolds. “We appreciate the community taking a few minutes out of their day to visit with us at the Farmers Market Pavilion. It’s a great opportunity for us to personally explain the many of services offered by the city.”

The event is from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Farmers Market Pavilion, with equipment displays, kid-friendly activities and other information as well as several presentations explaining essential daily operations. Lunch will also be provided.
