Noblesville to host touch-a-truck event May 22


As part of National Public Works Week, Noblesville will show off the vehicles and equipment from 5 to 7 p.m. May 22 at city hall, 16 S. 10th St.

“The city is hosting this fun, free event to connect with the community,” Mayor John Ditslear said. “A lot of children see these trucks and equipment in their neighborhoods, this event allows our residents the opportunity to sit in and learn about the different vehicles and the professionals who operate them.”

The community is invited to get a closer peek at the numerous public work jobs that the Noblesville streets, wastewater utilities, engineering and parks departments do for the city. The event will feature a variety of free activities for kids and adults.

“We hope this event engages the community – especially our youngest members – and offers a glimpse of what happens behind the scenes to maintain the quality of life residents expect,” Noblesville Street Commissioner Patty Johnson said. “I hope kids of all ages will join us to climb into the vehicles, learn about city programs and talk to our hard-working employees.”

Vehicles on display include a bucket truck, loader, asphalt recycler, vacuum truck, camera truck and mini excavator, among other equipment. Guests also can help “Paint a Plow” blade, walk across a 20-foot by 20-foot aerial map of the city, and play with the Rec 2 Go van. Hot dogs, water and popcorn will be available for free at the event.

National Public Works Week is May 20 through 26 and honors those who work in the profession.
