Join the City to Celebrate “Public Works Day” on May 18

The community is invited to grab their hard hats and join the City of Hillsboro Parks & Recreation, Water, and Public Works departments in celebrating the eighth Annual Public Works Day on Saturday, May 18.

The community gathering will take place from 8 am to 1:30 pm on the Tom Hughes Civic Center Plaza at 150 East Main Street in Downtown Hillsboro, during the Saturday Farmers’ Market.

This free event kicks off National Public Works Week and celebrates the City’s dedicated personnel who build, improve, maintain, and protect the systems and services vital to our community’s health, safety, and comfort.

City staff, exhibits, and equipment will fill the plaza for this hands-on, ask questions, family friendly occasion, including:

·       Interactive traffic signal

·       Light-emitting diode streetlight

·       Sanitary sewer pipeline inspection van

·       Front-end loader

·       Snowplow

·       Hydrant vehicles

·       Ventrac mower

·       John Deere wide area mower

·       Vermeer mini skid steer

“I urge all Hillsboro community members to familiarize themselves with our public works facilities and services, and to recognize the important contributions made each day by employees in the City of Hillsboro’s Parks & Recreation, Water, and Public Works departments,” said Hillsboro Mayor Steve Callaway while issuing the 2019 Public Works Week proclamation.
