Please congratulate Tom Lee, Park Maintenance Beatification Crew Chief, for his selection as employee of the 4th quarter of fiscal year 2015-2016!
As part of the City’s beautification initiative, Tom was asked to bring his expertise and professionalism to the table and provide input for several beautification projects. His expertise in design, materials, and installation proved to come in handy.
In identifying areas of need, the intersection of East Beltline and South Clark quickly came to the top of the list. Many citizens, City staff and elected officials drive past the intersection and it didn't go unnoticed that there were only a few trees along the medians, which did not reflect the premier status of our City.
Once the high priority areas were identified, Tom was asked to see what enhancements the City could make. Without hesitation, he designed a plan and selected plants and hardscape materials to lead the landscape project.
Since the completion of this beautification, the Parks and Recreation office has received several compliments and inquiries about the new landscape. Citizens and visitors want to know where to purchase the beautiful planting pots and what types of plants were used. Some people even call just to express their gratitude for the enhancement of the area.
None of this would be possible without Tom's expertise and his eye for design. For these reasons, and so many more, we are proud to honor Tom as the Employee of the 4th Quarter! Thank you, Tom, for your service to the City of Cedar Hill!
