Oxford County to celebrate National Public Works Week

County offering free tours and open houses to acknowledge the important contributions of Public Works professionals 


Public Works professionals are always there to maintain our roads, manage our waste, and treat our water. They keep our community connected and contribute to our quality of life by providing exceptional service, every day. 

From May 16 to 20, Oxford County is celebrating their hard work and dedication by taking part in National Public Works Week. The annual initiative acknowledges the important role of Public Works in the community, and recognizes the contributions of Public Works professionals.
