Jaime was hired in our Parks and Recreation department in 2020, then moved to Public Works to help the crew with SWPPP inspections, and landed back as our Parks Supervisor this last fall. As you can see, he’s a very versatile team member and well received by all.
Jaime’s position is everchanging with the seasons, but his leadership always stays the same – strong and steady. From spring to fall, his team is busy with sprinkler repairs and upkeep, mowing all city property, and fertilizing and spraying our beautiful parks so that members of our community can enjoy the open space. As we say goodbye to the warm weather of summer and fall, Jaimie’s team says hello to the upcoming cold weather by winterizing the public restrooms and sprinkler systems. His team then transitions into full holiday mode by putting up lights and decorations at Bicentennial Park, City Hall, and Barker Park, which hosts the annual “North Pole” events. After our city is beautified with lights and holiday spirit, our parks team spends the rest of the winter plowing snow and maintaining all parks buildings and facilities.
When asked about a work-related accomplishment that he’s proud of, Jaime said that he’s, “proud of the growth that I’ve had here in a short amount of time, and that’s thanks to the awesome team and supervisors I have worked for here and the great mentors and support system we have to help us grow.”
Jaime enjoys camping with his family at their property in Sourdough Wilderness Ranch, where they like to hunt, fish, and do any activity that involves his horses.
His favorite thing about North Ogden City is the camaraderie and the feel of a “brotherhood.” The “mutual respect and support that we all have for one another makes this truly a great place to work and city to be part of.”
We appreciate the many skills that you bring to the table and your ability to succeed in more than one area. Kudos, Jaime!
