Congratulations to City of Zephyrhills Public Works Director Shane LeBlanc, who was recently named 2022-2023 APWA (American Public Works Association) Florida West Coast Branch Public Works Director of the Year!
LeBlanc was nominated and recognized by APWA Florida West Coach Branch peers, during a March banquet in Gulfport. (The APWA West Coach branch covers the seven counties of Citurs, Hernando, Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk and Sumter, and has the largest membership in the state.)
LeBlanc has worked for the City of Zephyrhills for over 34 years (since 1988); the last 10 years have been spent as director of public works.
He joined the City following a four-year active duty stint in the U.S. Navy, where he served as a high-pressure welder working on nuclear ballistic submarines.
LeBlanc’s first post with the City was as a parks maintenance worker. He went on to earn promotions to parks supervisor, parks & facilities manager, public works superintendent, and then director of public works.
