Roads and Bridges maintenance worker and sign technician Cody Moeller was selected for Monroe County’s fourth quarter 2018 Employee Service Award.
Since Hurricane Irma, Moeller was reassigned to assist in the repair and replacement of traffic signage on County roads in the Lower Keys and on U.S. 1 in Marathon. Moeller did not have expertise in this work, but he went above and beyond to quickly learn the new trade.
“Working as an apprentice, he has been an exceptionally eager and very astute learner,” said Jim Crane, Sign Technician Installer with Monroe County. “I expected it would take more than three years to repair signs from Hurricane Irma. But due to Cody’s assistance, I am estimating almost half the time now.”
On Monroe County maintained roads, 1,726 signs were damaged by Hurricane Irma and 831 emergency temporary sign repairs were made.
Moeller completed prerequisites for “Signs and Markings I” and has attended the International Municipal Signal Association course, successfully passing the certification exam.
“Residents and co-workers have praised Moeller’s work ethic and positive attitude,” Crane said. “He is truly a blue-chip asset to our agency’s mission.”
