Roswell Puts Public Works Employees, Equipment To The Test

Posted: Updated:

Forklift Competition? Sanitation Truck Rodeo? Trackhoe Showdown? Yes...yes...and yes...sign us up, please!

The city of Roswell is celebrating National Public Works Week with a series of events sure to please anyone who likes large machinery. The week, which is sponsored nationally by the American Public Works Association, spotlights the men and women who work in the city's Public Works/Environmental, Community Development and Transportation Departments.

Today, the city is holding three events, starting with a Sanitation Truck Rodeo (which involves sanitation crews showing off their skills on a course), and then moving on to Forklift and Trackhoe competitions, during which employees will be tested on the equipment and judged on time and accuracy. All events take place at the Fire, Transportation and Public Works Facility at 1810 Hembree Road -- and yes, they're open to the public.

It will surprise nobody that Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken is determined to operate a forklift -- and while we're well aware of how disastrous that could be, we let him go anyway. Click the videos above to check it out!
