Public Works Week

May 21, 2007

Albany - Can you imagine if potholes on the roads you travel were never fixed? That's likely what would happen if we didn't have public works crews.

They keep our roads maintained, and even help fight the mosquito population. This week is national public works week. Dougherty County Assistant Director Chuck Mathis says his 68 employees are among the best in the country. "I think Dougherty County has the best public works department in Southwest Georgia," said Mathis.  "Look around and compare the way Dougherty County looks as to some of the other counties as far as maintenance and operations."

Public Works crews also help with litter control and upkeep of county parks.
