The American Concrete Pavement Association has recognized the village of Kimberly for building 100 percent of its roads with concrete.
The association awarded Kimberly its Harold J. Halm Presidential Award for that achivement. The award includes a commissioned painting depicting one of the concrete streets in the village of 6,600. The group’s award was given in honor of the first president of the ACPA and was first presented in 1994.
“This policy represents a very responsible approach to governing the Village’s infrastructure, finances and an ideal to which large and small cities across the United States can look to as a positive example of how to be a responsible steward of the public’s resources and trust,” said Gerald Voigt, ACPA President & CEO. “It is particularly fitting that this award be presented during this, the year in which the Village achieved 100 percent concrete pavement streets.”
