Public Works Week Spotlight: The Full Crew

 

Knightdale is joining many municipalities across the US and North America in celebrating our Public Works Department and those who make this Town tick. In honor of the Knightdale Public Works Department, Mayor James Roberson and Knightdale Town Council proclaimed Knightdale's observance of National Public Works Week between May 20th and May 26th.

Do you know what the Knightdale Public Works Crew does on a daily basis for the Town of Knightdale?  It's hard to measure the amount of work that goes into maintaining a town, especially one that is growing as fast as Knightdale is.  The Knightdale Public Works Crew is constantly responding to the needs of Knightdale residents, businesses, and visitors.  You might only notice them when something goes wrong and they need to come fix it.  For every fix these gentlemen stop everything for and to ensure a proper functioning town, there are a hundred tasks they are working through to maintain town services, amenities and facilities. 

Their often thankless tasks that go unnoticed in Knightdale include:

Pick up Leaves and debris from residences

Maintain the playgrounds

Maintain all Knightdale fleet vehicles

Keep the baseball and soccer fields and tennis courts ready for play

Pick up litter all over Town

Maintain all Town buildings and facilities

Repair and maintain storm water infrastructure

Fill potholes and repair Town roads

And many more tasks!

The Knightdale Public Works Staff is a group of 12 gentlemen who truly make Knightdale a functioning community. They work hard to keep Knightdale clean and working so you can #startsomething great! We want to thank this group for everything they do for us.
