NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Every week News 8 gives you a glimpse into the jobs that are the backbone of our state. Tonight, we meet a woman who not only helps to clean up the Elm City, but also keeps it safe.
Honda Smith is an inspector for the Department of Public Works in New Haven. “On a daily basis I normally look to make sure that the work zones are properly set up with signage so that we can have safety for the pedestrians and vehicle traffic,” Smith explains.
From overflowing trash containers to checking for properties in violation, Smith is always working to keep the residents of the Elm City safe.
