HEARING REQUIRED:    No Hearing Required      

 

SUMMARY:

 

Mr. Jones was employed by the City for 25 plus years, working within Parks and Recreation serving as part of the ballfield crew, which at the time was a two-person crew who were tasked with the maintenance of 13 ballfields.

 

Mr. Jones was instrumental in the growth of the “ballfield crew,” in growing it to what it is to date.  During his time with the City, Mr. Jones maintained or supervised the maintenance of the majority of fields, including practice fields, within the City.

 

The Roger Scott fields was a major project that he and his crew assisted in building, along with putting in all of the irrigation within the complex for the game fields.

 

Mr. Jones served as a mentor to many of his crew and for many years was an integral part of ensuring that practice fields and game fields alike were maintained and ready for play; to the enjoyment of countless youth within the city.

 

Mr. Jones was the “boots on the ground,” city employee that worked tirelessly whose time for recognition is now.

 

This proposal adds the name, Herman Jones, to the Ball Crew Building at Roger Scott.
