Boys can see toy trucks come to life, while parents shop for the produce and agricultural items Thursday in downtown Hinesville.

City of Hinesville’s Public Works department, OMI CH2MHill, will join the Hinesville Downtown Farmers Market to mark National Public Works Week. Residents will get an up close look at equipment and vehicles used to keep our town clean and beautiful. The public works display will be on Midway Street between Commerce Street and Wilcox from 3-6 p.m.

The market will take place from 4-8 p.m. in Bradwell Park and Commerce Street and offer produce, grass-fed beef, dog treats, skin care, eggs, fresh bread, pasta, honey, woodwork, fresh buffalo, baked goods and more.

To help commemorate, Hinesville Mayor Jim Thomas will sign a proclamation at 2:30 p.m., declaring it National Public Works Week.

OMI CH2MHill staff will be with their vehicles, to answer questions and demonstrate services. Vehicles and equipment on display will range from a mosquito spray truck to a knuckle boom loader. A water treatment display about the sewage treatment plant will also be set up.

“Public works is an integral part of our daily lives. Whether it’s the guy that empties your trash container, or the more technical aspects such as waste water treatment, the services we provide to the communities in which we work are essential,” OMI CH2MHill project manager Gary Gillard said.
