SAN ANTONIO - City Engineer and Director of San Antonio’s Transportation and Capital Improvements (TCI) Department Mike Frisbie has been named a Top Ten Public Works Leader for 2018.

The honor comes from the American Public Works Association, whose program honors excellence and dedication in public service by recognizing career service achievements of individual public works professionals and officials, from both the public and private sectors.

It is one of the most prestigious and coveted awards presented by the association.

"I am truly humbled and thankful to receive this prestigious award,” said Mike Frisbie. “I thank God, my family, our great City team, and the community for making this possible. This award would not have happened without City Manager, Sheryl Sculley, recommending robust infrastructure projects, the Mayor and City Council approving them, and my TCI team implementing them with our client departments. Special thanks to the voters who approved the 2007, 2012, and 2017 Bond Programs. Clearly this is a community award."

Frisbie has 30 years experience working for three municipalities and the private sector.

“Mike not only has a proven record of efficient management, he has a well-deserved reputation for bringing a creative vision to public works,” said Mayor Ron Nirenberg. “San Antonio is lucky to have him on our team.”

TCI maintains the City's streets, drainage, and traffic systems and manages the implementation of bond program projects and facility projects such as the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center expansion, Alamodome renovations, and the new Airport Consolidated Car Rental Facility.

Frisbie will be honored at a recognition ceremony Thursday during to the City Council meeting at the Municipal Plaza building.
