Wellington Receives American Public Works Association Accreditation
Wellington’s Public Works Department has been awarded a prestigious American Public Works Association (APWA) Accreditation. This is the second time the APWA’s Accreditation program has recognized Wellington’s continued commitment towards meeting the highest standard of management practices established nationally in the public works industry.
The accreditation process involved an in-depth assessment of department policies, procedures, and practices. This re-accreditation indicates Wellington’s Public Work’s Department has met all applicable accreditation documentation and practices. The Department has led the way for other local municipalities, after becoming the first Palm Beach County Public Works Department to receive accreditation in 2015.
Special recognition goes out to Accreditation Manager, Jesse Wright, Assistant Accreditation Manager, Susan Trzepacz, and Administrative Assistant, Michelle Diaz for their significant contribution to the body of work that earned this esteemed honor.
Wellington’s Public Works Department’s mission is to ensure that Wellington is financially sustainable, provides superior municipal services in a cost-effective manner, and is investing in well-designed, well-maintained infrastructure, engaging our residents in community governance to advocate for the interests of Wellington.
