CEDAR CITY–Brian Lafferty was honored with February’s Employee of the Month Award during last week’s Cedar City Council meeting.
The Cedar City Employee Advisory Committee chose to award Lafferty, a Wastewater Treatment Plant Operator, following a nomination from his supervisor, Treatment Plant Superintendent Eric Bonzo.
Bonzo said Lafferty has recently passed the Utah Wastewater Operator Grade 1 Exam and is an asset to the treatment plant and the city.
“He has a very positive can-do attitude and is very easy to work with,” Bonzo said. “(Lafferty) shows up every day ready to go to work, has a great work ethic, and works hard each day to keep the operations and maintenance at the Wastewater Treatment Plant running to its peak performance.”
In addition, Lafferty brings several avenues of experience and skill to the treatment plan.
“(Lafferty) has brought with him an extensive knowledge of boiler, electrical, and mechanical experience which is very beneficial to the other operators and operations of the Wastewater Treatment Plant on an every day basis,” Bonzo said.“(Lafferty) ensures every day that the WWTP is clean and in neat appearance, both on the inside and outside. With a very busy on-call schedule for each operator, (Lafferty) has been able to responsibly respond, access, identify, and correct emergency situations.”
