ORANGE -- Orange County's Public Works Department is hosting an Open House on Saturday, May 19, 2012 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 2301 Glassell Street. This event is held in conjunction with National Public Works Week which runs from May 20 through 26, 2012. National Public Works Week is a celebration of the tens of thousands of men and women in North America who provide and maintain the infrastructure and services collectively known as public works.
Ignacio Ochoa, Interim, Director of OC Public Works commented, "Our Open House gives us an opportunity to invite the public to see firsthand the broad spectrum of services and programs that OC Public Works provides County residents."
This year's festivities includes snacks, soft drinks, opportunity drawings, games for the kids, live music by the OC Band, exhibits hosted by various sections of OC Engineering, the OC Planning Division, other County agencies and Caltrans, and tours of the department's renovated Department Emergency Center (DOC).
OC Public Works is encouraging engineering students interested in internships or future career opportunities with OC Public Works to visit the event to talk to staff about the engineering profession.
