Public Works Joins Top Agencies in the U.S. to Receive APWA Accreditation 

Ventura Public Works has received the prestigious American Public Works Association (APWA) Accreditation Award. In July, 2014, APWA announced that Ventura was the 92nd Agency out of 38,142 cities, towns and counties throughout the United States to receive this honor. This award is a “seal of approval” from APWA for implementing nationally recognized best practices, state-of-the-art operations, and the most efficient use of public resources.

The City of Ventura Public Works Department is the 11th city in California to be accredited. Worldwide there are 95 agencies accredited – 93 in US and 2 in Canada.
