At the City Council Meeting on May 12th, President Elect of the American Public Works Association, Mr. Dwayne Kalynchuk presented City of Maitland Public Works Director, Anthony W. Leffin with the prestigious "Top Ten Leader of the Year" award for the United States and Canada.

The Top Ten Public Works Leaders Award seeks to inspire excellence and dedication in public service by recognizing outstanding career service achievements of individuals from both the public and private sectors. The award is announced in conjunction with National Public Works Week, May 19-25, 2003.

Leffin has been the Director of Public Works since 1987. His staff is responsible for providing potable, irrigation, and fire protection water services, the wastewater infrastructure, maintenance of all city buildings, city vehicles and small equipment, city streets, signs and striping, including grounds maintenance tasks for all city-owned property.

Under Leffin's direction, Maitland's Public Works Department established one of the first successful newspaper recycling programs in central Florida; implemented a highly successful water conservation program in 2000 that produced high reduction results and increased community awareness of water conservation; implemented the first comprehensive Citywide Stormwater Lakes Management Plan in Florida in 1996; set up the first public/private partnership with the 189.2-acre Maitland Center, considered one of the premier office parks in the southeast; and helped establish the Emergency Response Team within the City of Maitland.

In the past 10 years Leffin has served APWA's Florida Chapter as Vice President, President-Elect, President, Immediate Past President, Chapter Delegate, and chair of several chapter committees. He has also been a three-time President of the Board of Directors of the City of Maitland's Chamber of Commerce, and is a past President and District Governor for Maitland Rotary.
