Celebrating Public Works Week in Davidson

This week, folks are recognizing the achievements of public works departments across the USA. In Davidson, we know public works employees to be hard-working, dedicated, and often the unsung heroes of town!

They are reporting for duty on-site just like our first-responders and have really been stepping up their game to keep this community healthy, safe, beautiful and clean during the COVID-19 pandemic.

What you might not know and how it impacts the Davidson community

And What About Those Sidewalks?

Yes, Davidson’s Public Works Department makes sure they get poured and ground in all neighborhoods and rights-of-way within town limits.



Public Works Does All This...And More!

The 9-person team is also responsible for the stormwater system, all town hall facilities, special event set-up and takedown (including all those seasonal banners), town vehicles, after-hours roadway emergencies, clean up around parks and in town, and so much more!

Thank you, Public Works Department! We celebrate you!
