David Fridell named City of St. Augustine’s

2012 Employee of the Year

Award presented with employee recognitions

totaling 660 years of service

David Fridell a utility technician in the Transmission and Distribution Division of the Public Works Department has been named the 2012 Employee of the Year for the City of St. Augustine.

Within a year of joining the City as a Utility Worker in 2007, David was promoted to his current position which includes responsibility for valve and hydrant maintenance and flushing programs which has placed him on the front line of the continuing challenge of “red water.” David has been at the heart of the issue from a maintenance perspective which at times has positioned him at the crux of volatile issues between the city and the utility customers and other departments.

“David has risen to the challenge in every instance, taking his job seriously, said Martha Graham, Public Works director in her nomination of David for the annual award. “David has developed a detailed knowledge of the city’s complex water distribution system which is now and will be continue to be extremely valuable to the city we move forward towards the elimination of “red water.” David is an exemplary example of a hard worker who is working his way up the ranks and still finds time to give back to his community through volunteer work.”

On his time off, David enjoys sports, in particular bowling and is a member of a league. Prior to working with the city, he and his brother worked framing homes And it was his carpentry skills that came into play when he volunteered as part of Homes for Troops to construct a new home for a disabled handicapped veteran here in St. Augustine.



The award was presented by City Manager John Regan at the city’s annual service awards presentation where, in addition to the Employee of the Year, awards were presented recognizing years of service including three for twenty-five years of service, Kipling J. Case, Solid Waste and Sanitation Division, James S. Costeira, Fire Department, and Diane R. Foreman, Police Department. All total, 68 employees representing 660 years of service were recognized.

Each department head may nominate an employee for the Employee of the Year recognition, and then selection is made by a committee of former award recipients. The recipient of the Employee of the Year Award receives a commemorative plaque, a reserved parking space for one year, and a retail gift certificate.
