It's National Public Works Week, and the city's Maintenance Operations Department celebrated earlier today by getting together at their Industrial Park Avenue headquarters to grill & chill while putting on new working T-shirts to mark the occasion.
"Public Works Week is an opportunity to thank and celebrate the employees that strengthen quality of life for our residents and recognize the essential services they provide," said Maintenance Operations Director David Ray. "Whether it's necessary day-to-day work or responding during a storm and other emergencies, our employees are there on the front lines."
For Director Ray in particular, being named the Volusia League of Cities Administration Employee of the Year during their annual awards banquet held last night in the Brannon Center added yet another reason to celebrate this week.
"Humbled and honored to be nominated and receive this award, which is a testament to all the men and women that work in Maintenance Operations," said Ray. "Thank you to City Manager Khalid Resheidat for always being an example of what leadership is and should be as well as the city commissioners who empower us to do our jobs."
