(STILLWATER, OKLAHOMA / May 11, 2016) — Hundreds of Stillwater elementary students will participate in National Public Works Week May 15–21 as city employees bring the "big trucks" to their schools.

Mayor Gina Noble will join city staff at Touch-a-Truck events at Stillwater elementary schools throughout the week to teach children about how public works jobs serve the community.

"We think the elementary students will love to see inside some of our large trucks and equipment,” Operations Deputy Team Leader Sean Eisensmith said. “They will be able to use the 'joy stick' that lifts the trash carts and see other cool vehicles."

Stillwater City Council will also honor city employees with a proclamation at its regular meeting Monday, May 16.

The City of Stillwater is a member of the American Public Works Association (APWA) and is proud to celebrate APWA National Public Works Week, which is observed annually the third week in May.
 
This year’s theme is "Public Works Always There," which showcases how communities depend on public works, and how the men and women of the profession are always there and always ready.

“National Public Works Week is a great opportunity to recognize the hard work and dedication of public works professionals in our community,” said Deputy Team Leader Matt Faulkner, who also helped organize the week’s events.
