RESOLUTION NO. 060216

 

Declaring February 19-25, 2006 as National Engineers Week in Kansas City, Missouri.

 

WHEREAS, nearly everything around that makes life easier, more fun and makes our economy go has been developed by an engineer; and

 

WHEREAS, National Engineers Week has adopted the theme Engineers Make a World of Difference which is extremely appropriate; and

 

WHEREAS, engineering firms impact local communities with water projects, road projects, bridge and sidewalk projects and buildings; and

 

WHEREAS, one of the goals of National Engineers Week is to show young people that being an engineer is an exciting and worthwhile career choice starting with elementary school children learning through Crayons to CAD programs, middle school students participating in the Future City Competition and high school students have access to engineering through the Explorers Post Program; and

 

WHEREAS, engineering helps the world function through pure drinking water and safe sanitation, electricity at the flip of a switch, instant communications around the globe, or government security projects, engineering firms make a difference; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby declare February 19-25, 2006 as National Engineers Week in Kansas City, Missouri; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that this Resolution be spread upon the Minutes of the Council in testimony thereof and that a copy hereof be presented to some of Kansas Citys finest engineering firms with the appreciation of the Mayor, Council and citizens of Kansas City for making the lives of everyone a safer and better place to live.
