Mike started with the City in July of 1980 as a temporary worker, and was hired on full time in May of 1981 to work in the Electric Department Energy Conservation projects. In 1991 he was promoted to Director of Engineering and Planning, and held that role with the City until he was once again promoted to Electric Superintendent 16 years ago this month.
We would have to use up the entire meeting time to tout all of Mike’s honors and achievements while serving the City of Milton-Freewater, so to summarize, Mike has been an excellent leader, superb representative of our Electric Utility, and a wonderful contributor to the Milton-Freewater community.
Mike has been our Smart Grid Project Manager the last couple of years and has done a great job over seeing this multi-million dollar project.
Mike has been an industry leader in demand response energy management and conservation, saving the City and its utility customers countless dollars over the life of his career here.
Mike is going to retire from his position with the city April 12th with the City, and I think everyone agrees, he leaves huge shoes to fill.
Thank you Mike, for your dedicated service and for sharing your talents for over 32 years!
