Kyle joined our Parks and Recreation Department only a couple of months ago and has jumped right in to help prioritize the daily work orders and task lists for our ten beautiful parks, Senior Center, North Shore Aquatic Center, Community Garden, and city flower planters. Aside from the daily jobs, there are unexpected tasks that need attention, such as a secondary water break, vandalism, or a windstorm cleanup to name a few. Communication and teamwork are key in the Parks and Recreation Department to keep all facilities safe, clean, functional, fun, and user friendly.
In Kyle’s short time with the city, he noticed the outside light timers and many park lights were not working properly in a few of our parks. He installed new timers and LED lights at these parks, which helped make them more efficient and cost effective. Many of the parks have older-style toilets, sinks, lighting, and drinking fountains, so Kyle did research and found retrofit parts to help make these more efficient. As he and his department install these upgrades, it will help eliminate waste, save money on both power and water, and help prevent the spread of germs for the overall wellbeing of all North Ogden Park and Recreation facility patrons.
When he’s not maintaining and beautifying our city, Kyle likes spending time with his family (particularly his better half, Emily, and their three children, Addison, Stockton, and Boston). He enjoys watching his kids play sports, dance, swim at North Shore, ride at the skate park, and camp. His favorite thing is volunteering with his kids at local events or causes, such as the Special Olympics, Major Taylor Foundation, or GiGi’s Playhouse, to name a few.
He loves North Ogden City because it’s a prime recreational, family-friendly, patriotic, and outdoor enthusiast’s destination. He believes that no person or place is perfect, but the citizens, visitors, volunteers, and staff make North Ogden City as good as it gets!
Thank you for all your hard work, Kyle. We appreciate you!
