Keeping New Haven safe and clean


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.

If you have an idea for someone we should talk with for ‘Working for Connecticut,’ send us an email or Facebook message, and watch News 8 every Friday for more stories on the people who are working to make Connecticut a great place to live.
