8th Annual Public Works Day

Adults and children can climb up into the seat of heavy equipment, view interactive displays, participate in educational activities, and learn about all the ways we serve our community!

The community is invited to grab their hard hats and join the City of Hillsboro Parks & Recreation, Water, and Public Works departments in celebrating the eighth Annual Public Works Day on Saturday, May 18.

The community gathering will take place from 8 am to 1:30 pm on the Tom Hughes Civic Center Plaza at 150 East Main Street in Downtown Hillsboro, during the Saturday Farmers’ Market.

This free event kicks off National Public Works Week and celebrates the City’s dedicated personnel who build, improve, maintain, and protect the systems and services vital to our community’s health, safety, and comfort.

City staff, exhibits, and equipment will fill the plaza for this hands-on, ask questions, family friendly occasion, including:

  • Interactive traffic signal
  • Light-emitting diode streetlight
  • Sanitary sewer pipeline inspection van
  • Front-end loader
  • Vactor truck
  • Hydrant vehicles
  • Ventrac mower
  • John Deere wide area mower
