The event is family-friendly and includes games and prizes for kids, balloons, cookies and lemonade.
Public Works is a vital part of our community and plays an important role in our daily lives. Every time you travel on a city street, take a stroll on the sidewalk, or spend time at one of the many parks and opens spaces in our City, you are surrounded by the services provided by the Public Works department. From constructing, cleaning, repairing, and maintaining city streets and sidewalks to creating and maintaining the urban forest, parks and open spaces, Public Works is all around you. Public Works also administers the Capital Improvement Program approved by the City Council that creates needed infrastructure within the community, such as the crosswalk improvements in Old Town, Hollister Class I Multi-Use Path and the in progress Hollister Avenue Complete Streets Corridor Project.
