Previously, Palm Bay’s Public Works Department had received APWA Accreditation in July, 2008.

The Re-Accreditation will be presented to the Palm Bay Public Works staff by APWA Board Director  for Region IV, Tommy Brown, the Superintendent of Fleet Services for the city of La Grange in the City Council Chambers at 7 p.m. Feb. 21 at Palm Bay City Hall, 120 Malabar Road in Palm Bay.

On a daily basis, accredited agencies meet or exceed standards of performance in areas such as road and bridge repair and maintenance, engineering and construction services, stormwater management, utility coordination and vehicle maintenance.

“It’s great to see  Palm Bay’s Department of Public Works  complete  the Re-Accreditation  assessment, and see their renewed commitment to  detailed review of their agency’s policies and procedures to qualify,” said APWA Credentialing Director Ann Daniels.  “They are to be commended for their professional teamwork and assessments.”
