On Tuesday, 10/4 the board approved hiring RJ Viers as the public works supervisor. He requested to start work the next day 10/5. He brings a lot of experience to the job and has lived in Buena Vista and Florissant — so GMF should bring new, but not unusual challenges for him. Welcome RJ!
Additionally, the board approved the hiring of Dustin Alexander as a part-time public works employee. RJ has met Dustin and approved of Dustin’s hiring. Welcome Dustin!
This doesn’t mean that we’re losing Jim! Our skilled blade-hand Jim VanScoten will fill in as necessary and be available to help RJ and Dustin as they get settled.
It may be just in the nick of time too — with the weather changes there are a host of new public works chores — and maybe snow plowing in the near future!!
