Striving to become an outstanding provider of services to the Coral Springs community, the Public Works Department has achieved national accreditation. Awarded by the American Public Works Association (APWA), the accreditation examiners reviewed 347 policies, procedures and practices to determine if the Department met the high standards for Accreditation.  The Keep Coral Springs Beautiful litter collection program was also named a “Model Practice.”

The City of Coral Springs Public Works Department is the first Accredited Agency in Broward County, the 11th in the State, and 121st organization in the nation. The award is granted for four years with a mandatory update every two years demonstrating continuous service improvement.

“We are honored by this recognition and are extremely proud of our team,” Director of Public Works Rich Michaud said. “Serving our residents with the highest standards is our top priority.”

The APWA standards cover all areas of public works services, from emergency preparedness, to pot hole repair, water and sewer infrastructure, Facilities maintenance, and solid waste management.
