We initiated a new annual award for our city employees, to be given to the employee(s) who have done something truly extraordinary to demonstrate the values of “PEAK:” Progressive, Energetic, Ambitious, and Knowledgeable. We selected Street Supervisor Scott “Tiny” Felter and Fleet Manager Tyrel Stark as the inaugural recipients of the PEAK Award for the incredible amount of “in-house” work they did on a variety of important projects this year, saving North Ogden taxpayers over one hundred thousand dollars!
They took the lead in constructing the beautiful new volleyball courts at North Ogden Park, doing the site prep for the new Skate Park, building new offices in the Public Works facility, building a new Animal Shelter, building vents for our new Pressure Reducing Valve for the water system, and many other cost-saving projects. Not one of these diverse projects was really in their “job descriptions,” but they showed an incredible sense of teamwork and loyalty to the citizens of North Ogden by offering their unique talents in areas outside their normal duties. This resulted in us not having to contract these projects out during a very aggressive construction market, where we would have paid high prices. Thank you Tiny and Tyrel for all you do for North Ogden City!
