 PINELLAS PARK – The City of Pinellas Park’s Public Works Department has achieved accreditation with the American Public Works Association (APWA). The APWA’s accreditation program exists for the purpose of providing formal verification and recognition of public works departments that apply the recommended public works management practices.

 “The Accreditation of the City of Pinellas Park’s Department of Public Works indicates our staff have met all applicable accreditation documentation and practices over time.
