You know how some people put in the essential hard work, do not look for recognition, and can always be counted on? Smithfield is very fortunate to have a group of these people in the Town of Smithfield’s Public Works Department! They keep Downtown Smithfield looking great, whether they are installing flags and banners or keeping it clean. They are instrumental in Downtown Smithfield events, working before and afterward to get downtown back to normal soon after an event that attracts thousands. When it snows, they are among the first people downtown, shoveling sidewalks so that businesses can open. They can even be found out in the middle of a hurricane checking on downtown. Although their work is often not seen by the public, their contributions to Downtown Smithfield are of tremendous importance, and are very much appreciated! That is why they are North Carolina Main Street Champions.
