Defining Public Works
When it comes to public works, one size definitely does not fit all, so defining the term becomes problematic. Some of the physical attributes include, but not limited to, are snow removal, sanitation and recycling, masonry, electrical, maintaining our vast underground and overhead infrastructure, paving roads, street sweeping, storm preparedness, first responders, and so much more. Because of the multi-faceted, ever-evolving and sustainable nature of public works, we may never arrive at a final definition, but for now, the following is the most appropriate definition of Public Works:
Public works is the combination of physical assets, management practices, policies, and professional personnel necessary for government to provide and sustain structures and services essential to the welfare and acceptable quality of life for its citizens, businesses and those who visit.
