In January 2022, County Manager Taco Pope, instituted new Customer Care Standards to govern both internal and external interactions and to create a more positive work environment. Part of this initiative includes an Employee Recognition Program in which employees can nominate co-workers who have demonstrated Nassau County's Customer Care Standards and/or has provided exceptional performance beyond established duties and responsibilities.
We are pleased to announce that our new Employee of the Quarter is Road & Bridge Supervisor, Darren Marsh.
Mr. Marsh was selected for leading the way to accomplish what needed to be done during a period of record low manning levels in the Road Department. Mr. Marsh, on two separate occasions, went beyond the expectations of his position when he donned chest high waters and entered outfall ditches with areas of up to 4 feet of swamp water to remove beaver dams and other debris in an effort to improve waterflow. Mr. Marsh walked several miles of outfall ditches and removed multiple beaver dams, some as big as 7 feet high by 20 feet wide. While cleaning one pipe, Mr. Marsh was faced with an alligator and was not only able to safety remove himself, but also made sure the alligator was safely removed and relocated without incident as well.
This is just one small example of Darren's service and dedication to the County and its residents. If you see Darren, be sure to congratulate him on being our Employee of the Quarter!
