Sentinel staff report–
The 2nd annual Public Works Showcase in Citrus Heights, held at Van Maren Park on May 18, attracted more than 300 people throughout the three hour event last week, according to a city spokeswoman.

Marisa Brown, the city’s new communications officer, called the event a success in an email to The Sentinel on Tuesday, saying attendees had a chance “to learn about career and education opportunities, explore the machines that help run the city and even enjoy a sweet treat from Kona Ice and Tucker’s Kettle Corn!”

Brown said attendees of all ages also got a chance to participate in hands-on experiences from vendors, including fixing a broken pipe and navigating sewer pipes.
