Recognizing great team effort is always a joyful occasion and the Parks division has a long history of making their crews feel truly appreciated. The division held its annual Service and Safety Awards ceremony on June 22 at Oak Point Nature & Retreat Center. A catered breakfast added to the other honors the men and women received.
Ron Smith, park services manager, conveyed the department’s sentiments to the team, “We are proud to recognize our employees who demonstrate and maintain a level of safety and who look out for one another. Our Parks employees ensure our facilities are of the utmost quality, and it shows—not only to Plano residents but across the country.”
The Parks division is comprised of 126 employees who are equipment operators, field and ground maintenance workers, irrigation technicians, landscape architects, urban foresters and other support members.
