The Public Works Department is proud to announce the date of our Second Annual Public Works Week Open House!
National Public Works Week (May 19th-May 25th) is celebrated across the country every year to call attention to the importance of public works projects, programs, and services in our communities. The open house work to acquaint residents with services provided by the Public Works Department.
The City of Vallejo Public Works Department takes this time to reach out to our community, honor our staff, and celebrate with our many Public Works partners.
During Public Works Week, we will host several events including our Second Annual Open House, our First Annual Student Day, and our employee recognition luncheon.
