 Public Works Receives National Accreditation.

Review results in APWA membership.

On November 15, the county’s Public Works Department received accreditation from the American Public Works Association (APWA). APWA, an international organization promoting professional excellence, awarded the accreditation after an intensive review and evaluation of the department’s policies, procedures and operations.

“Thurston County’s Public Works is to be commended for their commitment to improving operations to enhance their internal performance, and to assuring their community they meet or exceed national standards,” said APWA Accreditation Director Ann Daniels.

Public Works is responsible for the design, construction, maintenance and improvement of more than 1,000 miles of county roadway and adjacent right of way in addition to waste and utilities management, traffic signs and signals and county parks.
