Two city of Lynwood employees have been named Employees of the Quarter. They were honored at the City Council meeting earlier this month.
Margarita “Maggie” Alfaro of the Recreation and Community Services Department and Arturo Mendez of the Public Works Department were praised by their department heads and Council members.
“Maggie” has made her mark on the city very quickly. She’s only been on the job for 15 months.
“She is famous for her sunny personality and works great with residents she meets in the Sports Division,” said Mark Flores, Director of Recreation and Community Services.
Maggie is a graduate of Firebaugh High School and is in college working toward becoming a teacher–hopefully in the Lynwood School District.
Art Mendez is a dedicated and versatile employee who has helped replace all city lighting to Energy Efficient Lighting and is a certified Building Operator Level 1, which is a nationally recognized certification for facilities and maintenance operations.
“Art is one of those employees that does what is needed to get the job done. One of his most accomplished jobs has been the Veteran’s Memorial located in front of Bateman Hall,” said Sal Mendez, Public Works Director.
The city has reinstated the employee awards and will continue to honor employees every quarter who are exemplary.
“Recognizing the hard work that many of our employees do and how their work benefits the public is important, and we are proud that Maggie and Art have been honored,” said Cynthia Stafford, Lynwood’s Director of Human Resources.
Congrats to Maggie and Art!
