Parks and Recreation Director Weed stated that AJ came to work for the City as a part-time employee for the streets department in April 2017. As a part-time employee his work ethic was quickly noticed and when the opportunity arose in July 2017 he was hired on as full-time employee in the Parks and Recreation Department.
AJ continues to do good work and will always find a way to go above and beyond. However, this past summer he truly went above and beyond when he stepped up to the plate when the parks crew lead was out and helped to fill that role. Every day he made sure of the assignments for himself and the crew, made sure the job was complete and notified the director of anything else he noticed that could or needed to be done.
AJ very rarely takes a sick day and quietly gets the job done no matter how big or small the job and is willing to learn along the way. Recently he has taken on more skilled tasks like irrigation and has shown in interest in learning as much as he can. For this I am proud to say AJ works for the Parks and Recreation Department and has been a great addition to the City.
For earning employee of the quarter AJ will receive a day off with pay, a $50 gift card donated by a Lake Alfred resident and a plaque.
