Today I would like to share my appreciation to the team of employees that take care of the Timpanogos Detention Basin. They do an outstanding job. They regularly mow the soccer field, fertilize, and aerate the grass. They keep the park and the bathrooms clean. Every time I have passed along a concern, such as a broken sprinkler head, security lighht on the equipment building burned out, and a dangerous situation where somebody removed the steel grate on the basin drain, your employees have responded and taken care of the issue within a day or two, and with the missing grate immediately.
Please pass my thanks and appreciation to the staff that operate out of this equipment shed. They do a great job and they should have more than just my verbal thanks when I talk to them. I wanted you to know I have noticed and observed the good work they do.I love getting letters like this because it reminds me how much happens in our city without us noticing it. Most of the time, we don’t worry about whether we will have safe drinking water, clean streets, or well maintained parks. This is because our city employees are constantly working behind the scenes to keep our city running the way it should. I appreciate all of our employees and the work they do to keep Orem great. Have you ever noticed a city employee doing something that deserves our appreciation? Tell me about it at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll make sure they receive your thanks!
