Cold Lake brings home Public Works Award
 
Cold Lake, AB – The City of Cold Lake was the winner of an award for its activities during National Public Works Week.
“Our Public Works department works very hard,” said Mayor Craig Copeland. “It’s great to see so many people taking part in Public Works Week when we host it, and for that to be acknowledged by the Canadian Public Works Association is very rewarding.”
The city competed against eight other communities, but came out on top to win the National Public Works Week 2016 Canadian Public Works Association (CPWA) Small Centres Award.
The announcement was made at the Public Works Expo in Minneapolis, where many public works professionals from the Canadian Public Works Association (CPWA) are in attendance.
National Public Works Week takes place the third week in May. For the City of Cold Lake, activities were held all week long, including an open house of the public works shop, student activities like painting a plow blade, a colouring contest, community clean up, and more.
“The City of Cold Lake is committed to using National Public Works Week to energize and educate the public on the importance of public works to their daily lives,” said General Manager of Infrastructure Services Azam Khan.
The city is already planning events for the 2017 National Public Works Week, and expects to expand on the programs and events from this year.
