Q: What do you do?
A: I make sure that when we schedule an overlay for a street, notes are put out in residents' doors 10 days in advance and parking signs are up three days in advance. On the morning of the overlay, I make sure to knock on doors when we see vehicles that need to be moved in order for us to start the process. I make sure that everything is run smoothly. I talk to residents and coordinate my team.
Q: What do you like most about your job and what is the most challenging?
A: I enjoy being able to complete a task. I am a "list person," so being able to check off my list when we overlay streets is a satisfaction for me. Seeing the results gives me a lot of joy! One of the most challenging aspects of my job is the fact that people don't realize this is a dangerous job. People can get hurt here, so we definitely depend on each other. We watch each other's backs and also look out for residents and people on the road. This can be a bit stressful, but it's very rewarding.
