The American Public Works Association (APWA) has sponsored National Public Works Week since 1960.  APWA members use this week to energize and educate the public on the importance of public works to their daily lives: planning, building, managing and operating at the heart of their local communities to improve everyday quality of life.  

APWA encourages public works agencies and professionals to take the opportunity to make their stories known in their communities.  There are a variety of resources available on the APWA website to assist agencies in the development and implementation of their own celebrations.  

To download the resources or to learn more about National Public Works Week, visit APWA's site here:   National Public Works Week

May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month
With warmer weather, it's time to remind everyone to be on alert and to share the road with motorcyclists.

Motorcyclist deaths occurred 27 times more frequently than fatalities in other vehicles, based on 2014 crash data.  

Safe riding practices and cooperation from all road users will help reduce the number of fatalities and injuries on our nation's highways.  By raising motorists' awareness, both drivers and riders will be safer sharing the road. 

To learn more visit: NHTSA Motorcycle Safety.
