Bloomington Public Works open house is Saturday morning

In celebration of National Public Works Week, the city will host an open house at the Bloomington Public Works Building this weekend.

The open house is 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 20, at the public works building, 1700 W. 98th St.

The open house will feature snowplow and tractor displays and rides, demonstrations, interactive displays, prizes, hot dogs and popcorn. Children will receive a passport to collect stamps as they visit stations, then turn in filled passports for a prize.

The Water Treatment Plant will also offer a limited number of tours. For reservations, call 952-563-4905 weekdays between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

Public works provides safe and efficient transportation routes throughout Bloomington, maintains the city’s streets, parks, vehicles and public facilities, provides snowplowing services, delivers clean drinking water, manages the sanitary sewer system and reviews the impact construction and development projects will have on local and regional infrastructure.
