Public Works Week: An Appreciation
On this episode of Dover Download, and in recognition of Public Works Week, Deputy City Manager Christopher Parker chats with Community Services Director John Storer and Deputy Director of Community Services David Fredrickson about public works in Dover. National Public Works Week is observed annually during the third full week of May, which this year is May 21 through 27. It’s a time to reflect and recognize the importance of public works in an organized society and shed light on the essential role that public works employees play in society. Public works help keep communities strong by providing an infrastructure of services in transportation, water, wastewater, and stormwater treatment, public buildings and spaces, parks and grounds, solid waste, and right-of-way management. They are what make communities great places to live and work.
In This Week in Dover History, we revisit the 50th anniversary of Foster's Daily Democrat, celebrated 100 years ago in 1923.
