The Town of Windsor is celebrating National Public Works Week 2023 alongside the American Public Works Association (APWA) from May 21 through May 27. The town is hosting its annual Touch-A-Truck Event on Wednesday, May 24 at the Public Works facility from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. located at 922 N. 15th St.

At the event, kids will have the opportunity to touch construction equipment, sit in the driver’s seat and honk the horn. Public works staff will teach attendees the importance of the vehicles and how they are used to maintain the town daily. The event is free to attend, and Kona Ice will be there to offer complimentary treats. The first two hours of the event, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., is sensory friendly and will be free of horns, sirens and flashing lights.

The theme of this year’s National Public Works Week is “Connecting the World Through Public Works.” The theme highlights the way public works professionals connect us physically, through infrastructure, and inspirationally, through service to their communities, whether as first responders, or daily workers carrying out their duty with pride.

Public works professionals help keep Windsor’s community strong by providing infrastructure services in transportation, water wastewater and stormwater treatment, town facilities, parks, emergency management and first response, and right-of-way management. The quiet work that Windsor’s Public Services staff does every day is what helps make Windsor an ideal place to live and work.
