Kudos to City of Yorkton Maintenance Workers
This letter is in recognition of the many hardworking men and women on the maintenance crews in our city.
A recent water main problem on our city Crescent required extensive use of equipment and man/womanpower. Not a quick fix and move on; but an organized operation over several return occasions, involving a private concrete driveway with adjoining meticulous lawn and flower landscape. Also the front paved street. Diagnostics, excavation and reparation.The coordination, communication, cooperation and patience was a captivating sight throughout the whole process from start to finish ( and a fine, neat finish indeed!)
As an interested neighbor and taxpayer I watched in awe. My front window was like a TV screen throughout the operation. And my household duties were put on hold!
From workboots to rubberboots, from hard hats to hands and knees, to pen and paper work. From tape measure to backhoe, packers and truck drivers, and many in between, standing ready for their particular role to play in this multitask operation. The array of hand tools and heavy equipment put to use by able and trained individuals was an intriguing and amazing sight.
These men and women deserve our utmost respect and gratitude for their efforts and expertise to keep our lives and city running smoothly, safely and conveniently. I would hope and trust that all communities are afforded such means!
Note: This example of workmanship and equipment was only one of many varied maintenance activities happening within our city simaltaneously. We’re thankful for all!
