Four City of Peoria Departments Awarded Prestigious APWA

Four Peoria, Arizona departments, including the Department of Public Works – Utilities Department, the Engineering Department, the Community Services Department, and the Planning and Community Development Department, have recently been awarded the prestig


Four Peoria, Arizona departments, including the Department of Public Works –
Utilities Department, the Engineering Department, the Community Services Department, and the
Planning and Community Development Department, have recently been awarded the prestigious
American Public Works Association (APWA) Re-Accreditation. The APWA Re-Accreditation program
recognizes public works agencies that go beyond the requirements of the management practices
established nationally in the public works industry.

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, building and grounds
maintenance, utility coordination and vehicle maintenance. Peoria’s Re-Accreditati0n indicates that
these city departments are maintaining Accreditation documentation and practices, and meeting any
new practices adopted by the APWA. “The awarding of Peoria’s APWA Re-Accreditation shows that
four city departments have re-dedicated themselves to concepts of continuous improvement and indepth
self-assessment of department policies, procedures and practices. In addition to Peoria’s
successful Re-Accreditation, it was found to have five model practices that will be shared with other
agencies across the nation. The heroes of this prestigious award are each department’s staff
members, who provide a high level of dedication and service to our mission,” said Peoria Public Works
Director, Bill Mattingly, PE, RLS.

The Peoria Public Works – Utilities Department is responsible for maintaining and operating the city’s
water supply and infrastructure, and is comprised of three sections, including Environmental
Resources, Water and Wastewater. “I am very proud of the services available in the Public Works -
Utilities Department,” Mattingly said. “This prestigious distinction was the result of many months of
hard work and dedication from the public works – utilities employees,” he added. “They are
committed to providing the public with professional, cost efficient and courteous service along with
safe, effective and efficient public works services.”

Within the three other Peoria departments awarded Re-Accreditation, the Engineering Department is
responsible for providing the in-house professional engineering services for the city, which includes
project management for streets, drainage and traffic signal capital improvement projects, inspection
of private development projects, capital improvement projects, dry utilities and custom home grading
and drainage, and traffic management. The Community Services Department is responsible for both
programs and facilities in the following divisions; parks, recreation programs, library operations,
special events and the sports complex, which contains 13 full sized baseball fields and is home to the
Seattle Mariners and the San Diego Padres for Spring Training, and year round player development.
In addition, the Planning and Community Development Department is responsible for establishing
short and long-range development standards, Housing Services, the Neighborhood Pride program,
implementation and administration of city zoning, planning and development policies. The
department also provides staff support for the City Council, Planning and Zoning Commission, Board
of Adjustments, Design Review Board, and the Historic Preservation Commission.

For Peoria’s Departmental Re-Accreditation review, a team of public works professionals from Victoria, BC; South Jordan, Utah; and Kansas City, MO., completed a thorough evaluation of operations during their March, 2013 site visit. Peoria had originally been awarded APWA Accreditation in July, 2009 “It’s great to see that four of Peoria’s Departments have completed the Re-Accreditation assessment, and I commend their renewed commitment to detailed review of their agency’s policies and procedures to qualify,” said APWA Credentialing Director Ann Daniels.
