You’ve seen big Public Works trucks around town, ever wondered what some of them do? Come find out at the Meet-A-Truck event on Thursday, May 19 from 1 to 3 p.m. The City of Bellingham Public Works Department and Bellingham Public Library invite you to this annual event where you can view some of the equipment used to keep our City running. This event takes place during National Public Works Week, a time to celebrate and recognize the work it takes to maintain the infrastructure and services the Public Works Department provides for our community.
From repairing and maintaining city streets to cleaning our wastewater, Public Works is behind essential services utilized every day. Some of the trucks and equipment used by Public Works will be on display to the public on Lottie Street in front of City Hall (210 Lottie St.) This is a great event for kids who love trucks and people of all ages who are interested in learning more about Public Works. There will be demonstrations, activities, and a reading and craft station hosted by the Bellingham Public Library. Everyone is welcome, no RSVP necessary.
Meet-A-Truck will take place rain or shine. This event is free, all ages are welcome. Masks and social distancing are encouraged. Meet-A-Truck is scheduled on a Thursday afternoon to align with Bellingham Public School’s early release for all elementary schools.
