City of Thousand Oaks Celebrates National Public Works Week, May 21-27, 2017

For the 30th year, the City of Thousand Oaks will celebrate National Public Works Week to honor the tens of thousands of men and women who provide and maintain the essential infrastructure and services collectively known as Public Works. In 2010, the City of Thousand Oaks was recognized by the American Public Works Association as an Accredited Public Works Agency.

This year’s National Public Works Week theme, “Public Works Connects Us,” illustrates the pervasiveness of Public Works

Public Works Week is an open house event to educate the Conejo Valley and surrounding cities’ youth and adults on how Public Works provides service to the community. The two-day event will include demonstrations on tree maintenance, graffiti removal, street repair, water conservation, recycling, bicycle safety, water operations, and wastewater collection. Highlights include a bus ride through the car wash in a Compressed Natural Gas bus and demonstrations of the landscape aerial lift.

The two-day open house will be held on Tuesday, May 23, and Wednesday, May 24, 2017, at the Municipal Service Center, located at 1993 Rancho Conejo Boulevard. Individual and group tours may be scheduled between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. each day. Reservations are required for this event and are due by May 12, 2017.
