Together these activities account for services on more than 250 miles of street, over 40 public structures, and over 500 City-owned vehicles (including police and fire apparatus). Additionally, the Public Works Department is responsible for the repair and maintenance of 34 facilities with a total area just over 500,000 square feet. Usher has been actively involved in all facets of public works for more than 37 years, beginning his career as a water division laborer, and through his demonstrated abilities rose through the ranks into leadership and management positions.

Usher has been an active 31-year member of APWA, serving in numerous leadership roles at both the local and national levels. He served in all five officer positions with the Chicago Metro Chapter, served as the chapter’s Membership Chair and Education Chair for two years, and served on the APWA Congress Host Committee for the 1994 Chicago Congress. He served on the national Emergency Management Committee for six years (2002-08) and chaired the committee in 2003-04. He also chaired APWA’s Homeland Security Task Force (2002-03) and the Engineering and Technology Committee (2010-11). He has served as the Director-at-Large, Fleet & Facilities Management, and has also served as a member of APWA’s Finance Committee. Usher was named APWA’s Professional Manager of the Year – Emergency Management in 2010 and was named one of APWA’s Top Ten Public Works Leaders of the Year in 2005.
