Oyster Bay Sewer District Commissioner Joseph G. Pecora, PE was recently honored to receive the Ivor S. Wisepart Transportation Engineer of the Year Award from the Institute of Transportation Engineers Metropolitan Section of New York and New Jersey. It was presented to Joe this past January at the organization's Past-Presidents Dinner, held at the Captain's Ketch Restaurant in Manhattan.

This local section of the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE), which has over 15,000 individual members in more than 80 countries, presents the award each year to an engineer who has made significant continuing contributions to the field of transportation engineering. Sewer District Commissioner Pecora is past-president of ITE New York / New Jersey, Met Section and recently finished a stint as a director on the group's Board of Directors for the worldwide organization.

"It is always a special feeling to be recognized for your accomplishments with an award," explained Commissioner Pecora, "but, when your peers, those you respect most in your professional circles, give you the honor, it's even more meaningful. I am thrilled to have been chosen from among a field of many deserving recipients."

A licensed professional engineer in both New York State and Florida, Joe is licensed as a Traffic Engineer in California as well. He is also one of only 700 certified Professional Transportation Operations Engineers nationwide.

During his more than 30 years with the Nassau County Department of Publics Works, Joe has played a significant role in satisfying many of the traffic engineering needs of the county's 1.3 million residents, among many other noteworthy contributions to the department. He continues to work in that capacity today.
