MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Help is on the way for the family of a Milwaukee DPW worker killed on the job. 

The Bubbler Tavern on Howell Avenue will have a fundraiser Saturday for the family of Bryan Rodriguez. Rodriguez was killed in a hit-and-run while filling potholes. 

Milwaukee's DPW street manager says Rodriguez was a good worker and will be missed. 

"He was the first out of the truck, last out of the truck when the job is done," said Steve Plevak, Milwaukee DPW Street Manager. "When there's a tragic incident, it's good for the community to come together. It's good for people to come out and get together, help the grieving process."

The fundraiser starts at 12:00 p.m. Saturday. All proceeds from beverage sales and tips to the staff will go to the Rodriguez family. Many local businesses have donated items for a silent auction and raffle.
