KANSAS CITY, MO. – January 15, 2019 – Tony Fietzer, Street Superintendent for the City of Green Bay, Wisconsin, has earned the Certified Public Works Professional – Manager (CPWP-M) designation from the American Public Works Association (APWA).
The Certified Public Works Professional program was launched by APWA in August 2018 and Fietzer is among some of the first candidates certified. The certification is designed to recognize individuals who have the knowledge and experience to manage organizations within a public works department.
Fietzer has worked in municipal government for nearly 20 years in both law enforcement and public works. He has been with the City of Green Bay’s Department of Public Works for 11 years.
“Public works maintains quality of life often without the recognition or acknowledgement,” Fietzer said. “Doing without public works services for one month in any community will immediately affect an individual’s quality of life.”
