HONOLULU – Mayor Kirk Caldwell has proclaimed May 17 through May 23 to be Public Works Week in the City and County of Honolulu, to coincide with the celebration of National Public Works Week across the United States. Our public workers are critical to improving and maintaining the infrastructure that serves the basic needs of our communities, such as waste disposal, parks, roads and flood protection. National Public Works Week was created by the American Public Works Association (APWA) to bring awareness to the importance of public works in our daily lives, with this year’s theme being
The Rhythm of Public Works.
“Mahalo to the public works staff for continuing to come to work and keep this city running during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Mayor Caldwell. “Our city truly cannot function without you. You are the women and men who keep our roads paved, our public facilities clean, and our parks ready to be enjoyed by all. The COVID-19 pandemic has placed additional burdens on our public workers including working overtime to protect the health and safety of our residents. We send our appreciation to our hard-working public works staff.”
The APWA Hawai‘i Chapter was established to serve the people dedicated to working in public works in Hawai‘i, by providing resources for ongoing education, training, and networking locally, nationally, and internationally. The APWA Hawai‘i Chapter consists of members from both private and public sectors, including employees at the City and County of Honolulu, many who continue to work during the current COVID 19 pandemic. These essential workers provide critical services needed every day by the community.
