Bus tour themes for 2023: Water, walkability and growth
Thursday, October 19, 2023
Growth is apparent in the city of Hugo as neighborhoods crop up in the blink of an eye.
It’s also apparent in the new Hugo Public Works facility, an enormous 60,000-square-foot building that houses the city’s fleet of snowplows, dump trucks, and graders, a mechanics bay for maintenance and repairs, a vehicle wash station, and a satellite office for Washington County deputies.
The building, which cost $9 million to construct, is the base of operations for all city infrastructure and was stop No. 1 on Hugo’s annual citywide bus tour.
This year’s two-hour outing Oct. 7 featured 23 stops, viewed from the window of a luxury coach.
