Honoring Patricia Hilderbrand on her recognition as one of the American Public Works Association’s Top Ten Public Works Leaders for 2017.

 

WHEREAS, the American Public Works Association annually recognizes innovation and excellence among public works professionals, identifying ten members as the top public works leaders; and

 

WHEREAS, peers name recipients of this award, with honorees selected for career service accomplishments in the public works field; and

 

WHEREAS, Patricia Hilderbrand’s contributions to the successful operation of the Public Works Department, the City and APWA during her twenty-year tenure with the City are too numerous to recount but include serving as a project manager and division head, managing the Public Works Department’s Capital Improvements program, implementing a range of technical innovations within the department, representing the City as a liaison with the Mid-America Regional Council and the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority, and serving in national leadership roles in professional organizations including the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure and APWA; and

 

WHEREAS, Patty consistently goes the extra mile and never settles for the status quo in her field. Her innovative solutions to improve project management processes have offered a more streamlined way to do business not only in the Public Works Department, but cross-departmentally in the City of Kansas City, Missouri; and

 

WHEREAS, Patty will be recognized as one of the American Public Works Association’s Top Ten Public Works Leaders for 2017 at the organization’s annual convention the week of May 21 and she is the first female City of Kansas City, Missouri employee to win this award; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY;

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby extend to Patty Hilderbrand, on the occasion of her recognition as one of the Top Ten Public Works Leaders of the Year by the American Public Works Association, gratitude and congratulations for her contributions to the Public Works Department and the City of Kansas City, Missouri; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that this Resolution be spread upon the Minutes of the Council in testimony thereof and that a copy hereof be presented to Patty Hilderbrand in token of the Mayor and Council’s respect, high regard, and their congratulations for recognition of her exemplary service.
