Have you ever met someone who is always “five minutes away” and, no matter the circumstance, is always there when you need them? This describes our Public Works Inspector, AJ Anderson, to a T. AJ began working in our Public Works Department as a Blue Stake Specialist in December of 2020 and is an expert in locating utility right-of-ways, properly marking and identifying underground facilities owned and operated by North Ogden City, all to prevent damage to facilities caused by excavation or demolition operations. He’s one that you can say knows our city streets like the back of his hand.
AJ’s ability to take care of assigned issues led him to his recent promotion to a Public Works Inspector who also does SWPPP (Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan) inspections. Inspectors play a big role in keeping our employees, contractors, and residents safe. His supervisor, Dylan Hill, says, “AJ is diligent and methodical when marking the city-owned utilities and is somehow only a few minutes away if you need help. He always brings a positive attitude to work and is very dependable.” We agree with Dylan and recognize AJ’s service to the city.
AJ enjoys golfing, bird hunting with his dogs, and going on different adventures with his fiancé. His favorite thing about North Ogden is the people he works with every day. We have an excellent inspections department, and AJ is a skilled and competent member of that team!
