Berks Public Works

What's New: (08/14/15):

The Berks County Public Works Association was initiated in 1996 by a group of concerned municipal officials and vendors of municipal-related services and equipment, to advance the theory and practice of the design, construction, maintenance, administration and operation of public works services, as well as the dissemination of information and experience upon the promotion of improved practices in public works administration and the encouragement of the adherence by public works officials to a continually higher standard.

The membership is comprised of active members, official and employees of government agencies, engaged in the field of public works; honorary members, retired officials and employees of governmental agencies who have been active members in the Association, in good standing, for ten (10) years; supporting members, officials and employees of governmental agencies engaged in the field of public works outside Berks County; and, associate members, any persons, company and/or corporation-associated persons with special knowledge, experience and interest in the public works field, desirous of aiding and furthering the objectives of the Association.
