National Public Works Week

It's National Public Works Week AND something we're calling Virtual Big Truck Week. While we can't host an open house or a Touch-a-Truck event, we're going to celebrate big trucks and cool jobs in our Public Works Department. Check out the drop down menus below for photos, crafts and fun facts. And we'll be adding content every day, so come back often to www.southelgin.com/NPWW. And check out our daily posts at facebook.com/SouthElgin.

Curiosity is one of the great things about being human. Young or old, we welcome your questions! "What's it like to drive a 5-ton dump truck?" "How does everyone know which streets to plow?" "How do you fix a water main break?" "What's the difference between a backhoe and a digger?" Email your curious questions to cchase@southelgin.com and we'll share answers from our Public Works crew!
