A resident recently sent an email complimenting the Department of Public Works for its response to a large tree branch that fell and blocked the street in front of her house. Soon after the woman called the county’s non-emergency number to report the situation, Road Maintenance Supervisor Steve Jinnett arrived and cleared a lane for traffic to pass.
The next morning, Jinnett and Road Maintenance Supervisors J.J. Rada and Mike McLaughlin, as well as Road Maintenance Heavy Equipment Specialists Pat Robertson, Warren Martin, Jeff Kirk and Jason Marshall, returned to clear the rest of the debris. The resident praised the crew for being careful not to damage her property and for asking her preferences regarding many aspects of the removal. The crew even helped the resident get out of her driveway when she had an appointment. She added the county is lucky to have such good employees with Public Works. Excellent work!
