Thanks to Los Gatos community advocate Jonathan Knowles for sharing these wonderful photos with us of the May 23 open house at the Parks and Public Works Department in honor of National Public Works Week.
Knowles reported many students from local schools went on tours of the department, which is responsible for maintaining the town's public parks, facilities, and infrastructure.
The department is comprised of five organizational units that include administration, engineering and capital projects, parks and forestry, facilities and streets and signals.
On hand to greet the public were Los Gatos Parks and Public Works Director Todd Capurso and Los Gatos Parks and Facilities Superintendent Christy Wolter.
Of note, Knowles said, was a shinny brand new street sweeping truck purchased by the town May 22.
The person in front of it in one of the photos accompanying this small post is Robert Ormonde, the town employee who drives it, Knowles said.
West Valley Clean Water Program representatives were also on hand doing clean water education. "It was all very interesting," Knowles wrote in an email to this publication.
Thank you, Jonathan Knowles for your thoughtfulness and great citizen journalism spirit!
