Residents got an up-close look at some of the heavy equipment the city uses during a Public Works open house on Wednesday at the City Complex. 

The open house is part of Public Works Week from May 15 to 21 here in Moose Jaw to honour its public works employees. 

A number of city services and infrastructure fall under public works including: 

  • Streets and roads 
  • Bridges 
  • Water and wastewater 
  • Public transit 
  • Parks and green space maintenance 
  • Facility maintenance. 

Students from four Moose Jaw elementary schools as well as folks from Diversified Services attended the event as special guests. 

Along with the displays, there was a barbecue with the proceeds going to the Moose Jaw Health Foundation’s Family First Radiothon.
