The year 2023 marks the 63rd annual National Public Works Week sponsored by the American Public Works Association. Public works professionals focus on infrastructure, facilities and services that are of vital importance to sustainable and resilient communities and to the public health, high quality of life and well-being of the people of Alberta.


Infrastructure, facilities and services could not be provided without the dedicated efforts of public works professionals, who are engineers, managers, and employees at all levels of government and the private sector, who are responsible for rebuilding, improving, and protecting our nation’s transportation, water supply, water treatment and solid waste systems, public buildings, and other structures and facilities essential for our citizens.


The Municipal District of Smoky River No. 130 hereby designates the week May 21–27, 2023 as National Public Works Week, and on behalf of Council and the M.D. staff we would like to thank all of the men and women who work hard everyday to make our communities better.
