Cooper began his career with North Ogden City in 2012 in the Culinary Water Department, maintaining and monitoring wells, reservoirs, springs, fire hydrants, and meter systems in our city. He excelled in this position and went on to receive his Water IV Certification. He decided to take a new path in the Public Works Department, switching gears and becoming a Mechanic II. Cooper’s daily responsibilities include maintaining all city vehicles and equipment, covering anything from a routine oil change to major repairs and rebuilds. He’s outstanding at what he does and fits in perfectly in the fleet crew!
Cooper is an extremely hard worker whose day doesn’t stop when he clocks out at North Ogden City. He lives out many peoples’ dreams and works on his family’s farm with his two siblings, wife, and daughter. He loves the challenges the farm brings with growing crops and operating machinery. He’s all cowboy and loves riding horses and team roping with his friends and beautiful family!
Tyrel Stark, Cooper’s supervisor says, “Cooper is a very dependable employee! It doesn’t matter the job; he takes pride in what he does and does it with a willing attitude. He is willing to help out in any department. Aside from his great work ethics, he is a very personable person, one that you can talk to and trust. I am honored to have Cooper work with me in the shop. We get work done and have a good time doing it! There is much more to be said about him, and I congratulate him for this spotlight!”
His favorite thing about North Ogden is the skills he’s learned by working on the array of equipment, which has taught him how to make repairs on the farm equipment he uses at home. In his words, “I can’t thank the city and my coworkers enough who have taught me these skills.”
Thank you for keeping our vehicles and equipment in superior condition and for your continued dedication to our city. We appreciate you!
