Posted on: September 24, 2018



The City of Corinth Public Works Department has been awarded the prestigious American Public Works Association (APWA) Accreditation designation.  The APWA Accreditation program recognizes public works agencies that go beyond the requirements of the management practices established nationally in the public works industry, as contained in the APWA Public Works Management Practices Manual.  The City of Corinth initially applied for Accreditation in February 2018.

Public Works Director Cody Collier and Recreation and Special Projects Manager Melissa Dolan received the Accreditation award from APWA Accreditation Council Member and Rowlett Public Works Director, Shawn Poe, at a presentation ceremony during the Corinth City Council meeting on September 20, 2018.  "On behalf of the Public Works Department, I am so pleased that we have been awarded this outstanding accreditation," stated Collier.  "The process of acquiring accreditation from the APWA was challenging, yet worth every minute.  I would like to thank the other city departments for their incredible support as we relied heavily upon the departments to contribute and assist us with many of the practices."

The Accreditation of the City's Public Works Department indicates the Department met all applicable Accreditation documentation and practices over time.  "I could not be more pleased with the work the Public Works Department does every day and this accreditation only goes to show their dedication to providing the highest levels of service and professionalism to the citizens of Corinth," said City Manager Bob Hart.

The City of Corinth Public Works Department becomes the 144th agency in North America to be awarded Accreditation and the 11th agency in the State of Texas.  In addition to Corinth, the accredited agencies in Texas include Austin, Houston, Plano, Arlington, College Station, Little Elm, University Park, Fort Worth, Flower Mound and Rowlett.
