Tim      
I’ve been with the Township for over twenty years. I started in Parks and Recreation, and after a few years in the private sector for a multi-national company, I began a full-time role with Facilities Maintenance. Every day, I’m learning more efficient processes to complete my work with a high level of detail. The Township has provided me with experience that I can take anywhere. The short commute, standard workweek, ongoing training, and benefits can’t be beat – especially when my wife and I have recently welcomed a new addition to our family!
