National Public Works Week
At the May 13 Katy City Council meeting, now former Mayor Chuck Brawner proclaimed May 19-25 as National Public Works Week. City Administrator Byron Hebert praised the Department of Public Works for its quick response to a May 7 water main break. Lighting struck a tree, which hit the ground and blew out a section of pipe. Hebert said the crew worked from 10 p.m. to 3:30 a.m to make the needed repairs. “You’re in the trenches and we appreciate it,” he said.
