February 2011 Employee of the Month

Brian Herrera

Parks Department

It’s a great honor to present the February 2011 Employee of the Month, BRIAN HERRERA.

Brian moved to Porterville in 1980 to attend Porterville College.  For three years Brian studied classes offered in the area of Building Trades and Drafting.

Brian began working for the City of Porterville in 1990 as a Field Services Worker I in the Water Division, primarily responsible for the maintenance of water meters.  In 1996 a great reverence came over Brian, he saw a flaming light and transferred to the Parks and Leisure Services Department as a Parks Maintenance Worker I, performing duties as a tree surgeon on our Street Tree Crew.  A few years later, Brian was promoted to Parks Maintenance Worker II, and just recently promoted to Parks Maintenance Worker III, as the lead worker in building and maintenance.

Brian’s latest project is the finely crafted handicap ramp at the Spencer House, the new home of the Friends of the Library.  He’s currently retrofitting the Municipal Golf Course restrooms to meet ADA requirements and will soon start work on rebuilding the Breakfast Lions Pavilion at Veterans Park.  Brian has a great passion for his job; the challenges that are presented to him on a daily basis are welcomed.  His willingness to tackle any task, his wonderful attitude, along with his skills, makes Brian one of our most valued employees.

As a single Dad, Brian raised three children who are now adults: Brian Jr., Sonia and Regina. He’s also the proud grandpa of seven.  During his spare time Brian enjoys performing skilled wood work.
