“City Works Day” in Castlegar on Wednesday last week was an overwhelming success. The weather co-operated and we couldn’t have asked for a better day. Kids from kindergarten to Grade 3 came and toured the Works Yard and learned about all that Public Works does. We had displays on water treatment, wastewater treatment, water distribution, fire fighting, ambulance and the mechanical shop. Additionally we had rides on the trackless, loader, excavator, backhoe, dump truck and Fortis bucket truck. One of the of the most popular stations was the hot dog stand where every child received a free hot dog and juice graciously donated by Safeway. We also had two brave mascots, Sparky the Fire Dog and Dozer Dug.
