City of Homestead Public Works Director Julio A. Brea, who received the Cuban-American Association of Civil Engineers Luis P. Saenz Engineer of the Year Award, was honored with a proclamation by Mayor Steven C. Bateman and members of the City Council during the April Council meeting.
The Cuban-American Association of Civil Engineers is a non-profit corporation organized under the law of the State of Florida whose purpose is to assist members in the maintenance of the highest professional engineering skills and to aid the members in retaining and exercising said skills.
Mr. Brea was awarded the Luis P. Saenz Engineer of the Year Award on March 31st of this year. The annual award is presented to professional civil engineers who, through their projects, reflect superior civil engineering skills and represent, through their participation on the profession, a significant contribution to the civil engineering progress and society. This award is presented to individuals who represent these ideals by achieving greater status on the profession by being appointed to positions of significant importance in the civil engineering profession, either within the government or private firms.
Mr. Brea was recognized for his outstanding contribution to Government in the Civil Engineering Field, especially during his tenure with the City of Homestead, and his charitable efforts in our community while preserving his Cuban Heritage. His accomplishments not only exemplify the qualities of a true Luis P. Saenz Award recipient, but also the qualities of a committed City employee and a dedicated public servant.
Mayor Steven C. Bateman proclaimed April 18 as Julio A. Brea Day in recognition of his achievement.
