Storm Water Employees Recognized
Four Storm Water employees were recognized recently during a Utilities Department meeting for going the extra mile.
A citizen wrote a letter commending the work of Project Manager Kori Ellien, Environmental Quality Specialists Rebecca Pezzi, Leopoldo Romano and Reynaldo Canales. The group helped an elderly Flour Bluff couple, whose health kept them from performing regular maintenance on their large cypress tree.
The overgrown tree had shed many leaves and needles, clogging a nearby storm drain and a washout, and littering the canal. The Storm Water team spent a day at the residence, gathering needles and leaves, and hauling it away.
