Construction is currently underway to replace the aging “spud house,” also known as the Band Garage/Public Works building # 3029. Sadly, this marks the end of an era where this building was used for a variety of purposes over the years and instilled memories for many of us. We asked a number of members if they could recall exactly when this building was constructed, but couldn’t get an exact date.
In the meantime, it’s business as usual for Public Works in our temporary location upstairs in Veterans Hall, and our phone number is still (204) 855-2052.
Along with our new building and plans to utilize the larger adjacent building in the yard, our goal is to “grow” with the community and expand our services and expertise. In addition to our physical move, we are also in the process of reorganizing and restructuring Public Works in order to deliver services to you with improved capacity. As a start, we expect to have an office manager in place for a period of six months from Employment and Training.
As many of our members begin to work on their yards and gardens this spring, we have had a number of requests recently for black dirt. We will be posting a sign-up list shortly in the Finance hallway and at the Dakota Quick Stop, so watch for this and sign up.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding Public Works, please contact us at (204) 855-2052. Our door is open daily from 8 AM to 5 PM Monday to Friday, or just drop by for a cup of coffee and a visit.
