February 2010 Employee of the Month

Richard Givens

Richard began employment with the City of Porterville as a Field Services Worker I in the Water Division.  During his seventeen-year career at Field Services, he was promoted to Field Services Worker II in the Water Division and Field Services Worker III in the Sewer Division. In his supervisory capacity as FS Worker III, Richard regularly trained entry-level Field Service Workers.

Late in 2005, Richard was promoted to his current position of Public Works Inspector in the Engineering Division of the Public Works Department, and assumed responsibility for field inspections of capital improvement projects, subdivisions, and encroachment permits.

Richard has spent the last several months training C-Set workers in the performance of concrete construction that includes the repair of curbs, gutters, and sidewalks.  His crew was also responsible for installing concrete bench pads at Centennial Park.

Richard and his wife Judy enjoy vacationing in Nevada and visiting family in Arizona.  They live alone with their dogs.

Richard appreciates receiving this recognition, and is grateful for the years he has worked at the City of Porterville.
