PUW 2016


The Hannibal Board of Public Works is excited to share information about our 6th Annual Public Utilities Week of events! 

Public Power Week is an annual national event coordinated by the American Public Power Association in Washington, D.C., and is celebrated during the first full week of October each year. 

We at the Hannibal Board of Public Works use this opportunity each year to give back to our community in a big way. For us, that means finding opportunities to serve. Check out our Schedule of Events to see where you can find us throughout the week!

The APPA represents not-for-profit, community-owned electric utilities that power homes, businesses and streets in nearly 2,000 towns and cities, serving 48 million Americans.  APPA partners with its members to promote public power, helping community-owned utilities deliver superior services through joint advocacy, education, and collaboration.
