Mayor Honors Public Works Department

Posted: 05/21/2012
Mayor Madeline Rogero and Senior Director of Public Works Christi Branscom recognized Public Works Week today at the Public Works complex at 1400 Loraine Street.

Mayor Rogero presented the Public Works Department with a proclamation naming the week as Public Works Week.

The City of Knoxville's Public Works Department includes Building Inspections and Permits and Zoning, Engineering, Parks and Recreation, and Public Service.

These divisions together are responsible for setting and protecting development standards for our neighborhoods and businesses; maintaining our roadways and sidewalks; providing parks and greenways for our citizens; planting trees, mowing grass, collecting yard waste, and generally ensuring the quality of life in our community.

The Public Works infrastructure, facilities, and services are of vital importance to the health, safety, economy and overall well-being of the City's community.

The year 2012 marks the 52nd annual National Public Works Week sponsored by the American Public Works Association.
