It’s never good to brag.
But there are times when doing a good job just has to be applauded.
And Wednesday was one of those times for the Pasadena Public Works Department.
Over the month of December, Pasadena Public Works employees must have been working overtime to keep the city functioning well and looking great.
While everyone — including, and maybe especially city workers — was either worrying about or battling COVID-19, and preparing for one of the more subdued and depressing holiday seasons on record, PWD workers were doing, well, what they do best, resulting in some pretty impressive achievements.
In one month, the Public Works Department performed:
58 bulky item pickups
261 abandoned item removals
102 debris and litter removals
219 graffiti removals
155 street light repairs
It’s remarkable to think that also during that time they also answered 6,040 calls or chats.
“Special thanks to our hardworking public works crews for everything they do to keep our city looking good and running smoothly,” the city tweeted Wednesday.
