The APWA Center for Sustainability is
pleased to introduce the first issue of “Sustainable Practices in Public Works”
– now available on our website.
This resource was developed in
collaboration with APWA’s Technical Committees. The Center for Sustainability
is grateful to the Technical Committees who contributed to this resource by
identifying sustainable practice examples within their discipline
(transportation, water, fleet, leadership and management, etc.) and providing
information about where and how these practices are being implemented.
The Center hopes ‘Sustainable Practices
in Public Works’ proves a useful resource for APWA members!
Lexington County Public Works Director and Midlands Branch Vice President, Wrenn Barrett, was recently designated a national Public Works Leadership Fellow (PWLF) by the American Public Works Association (APWA). Barrett received the APWA senior designation in recognition of the highest level of commitment to the public works profession. The APWA PWLFs have been designated to mentor other public works professionals in three of the APWA Leadership and Management professional development programs, including Public Works Executive (PWE), Public Works Manager (PWM), and the Public Works Supervisor (PWS).
In his 32-year career in civil engineering since his graduation from the University of South Carolina in 1983, Barrett’s concentrations have been in both the public and private sector, including municipal, county and state agencies as well as consulting firms. As Director of Lexington County’s Public Works, he is responsible for the management and operations of the departmental divisions including administration, transportation, construction, maintenance, stormwater and vector control with an approximate annual budget of $15 million with the staff of 90 employees.
