HBPW takes part in Public Utility Week, gives back to community

Hannibal Board of Public works crews are giving back this week.

BPW officials said crews are doing a variety of community work as part of ‘Public Utility Week.’

One of the big projects crews are undertaking is the removal of trees from Mt. Olivet Cemetery.

Officials said the projects they are doing are at no cost to the organizations they’re helping out.

“The windstorm here a few years ago damaged quite a few trees and they just didn’t have the means to take them down so we’ve been out there the last two days taking trees down they’ve wanted taken down and removing them,” said BPW Interim General Manager Matt Munzlinger.

Munzlinger said crews will continue to work on tree removal tomorrow and wrap up some other community projects the rest of the week.
