Declaring the week of May 18-24, 2014, as National Public Works Week in Kansas City, Missouri.

 

WHEREAS, public works infrastructure, facilities and services are of vital importance to sustainable communities and to the health, safety and well-being of a successful municipality; and

WHEREAS, Kansas City’s 408 Public Works employees monitor, maintain and repair more than 6,300 lane miles of streets, 620 traffic signals and 93,000 streetlights and collect 95 tons of solid waste every day; and

 

WHEREAS, public works projects, whether a simple curb repair, a bicycle trail, a bridge replacement or the construction of a streetcar line, all represent the American Public Works Department’s National Public Works Week theme of “Building for Today, Planning for Tomorrow;” and

 

WHEREAS, the year 2014 marks the 54th annual National Public Works Week sponsored by the American Public Works Association; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:
