LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

This week celebrates public works departments everywhere, including in South Georgia. 

On Thursday, some public works employees got to show off their driving skills during a truck rodeo in Lee County. 

Sixteen drivers competed in the competition. 

Organizers said that this is a fun way to celebrate the services that public works departments everywhere provide for the community. 

"Public works involves the infrastructure of every community. Without public works, some communities wouldn't have water, wouldn't have lights, wouldn't have decent highways, wouldn't have signage, wouldn't have control points," said Chucky Mathis with the American Public Works Association.

21 counties were represented at Thursday's competition.
