El Centro, California - Tuesday, May 17, in celebration of National Public Works Week, the Imperial County Department of Public Works (ICDPW) will host an open house in El Centro.  The event will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at their administrative office.

The open house is an opportunity for the public to get a firsthand look at the scope of work that Public Works does for a community.  A portion of the street in front of ICDPW’s administrative office will be closed for static displays of equipment used for their field operations, including but not limited to road maintenance and repair, street sweeping and emergency road closures, as well as demonstrations and tours of the facility.

National Public Works Week is used to energize and educate the public on the importance of the contribution of public works to their daily lives: planning, building, managing and operating the heart of our local communities, and building the quality of life.  For 2016, National Public Works Week will be held May 15-21.

Residents of Imperial Valley interested in receiving more information about the services provided by ICDPW are encouraged to attend.  Local, neighboring schools were also invited to participate.  For more information, contact Ed Delgado, Deputy Director of Public Works – Administration at (442) 265-1818.
