Every day throughout the year, over one thousand City employees perform various functions that, when isolated, may not seem significant. However, collectively, the tasks performed provide a backdrop for more than 128,000 lives. They keep traffic lights operating, toilets flushing, water safe for drinking and playgrounds safe for playing. They work behind the scenes to handle all the things you don’t think about so you can spend your life concentrating on the things you want to think about.
The Cedar Rapids Heroes campaign shines a light on many municipal positions that you might not be aware of—the chemist who tests your water, the dispatcher who connects you to emergency services, the planner who maps out Cedar Rapids’ future, and many more. We hope that our Everyday Extraordinary Heroes Campaign will allow you to get to know the people who serve you a little better and let you learn more about how your City works for you.
