July 2011 Employee of the Month

David Payne

Public Works Department

Department directors for the City of Porterville have selected David Payne as the July 2011 Employee of the Month.

David Payne arrived in the San Joaquin Valley with his family from up north when he was a small child, and he attended grammar school in Porterville.  The family relocated to Tulare, and he graduated from Tulare Western High School.

He was hired by the City in June 2007 as a Public Works Field Services Worker I.  Since then, he has acquired his Water Distribution II & III state mandated certification and has advanced to the rank of Water Utility Worker II.

David has always been a person with a positive attitude, has a great work ethic, and is always willing to do any variety of tasks requested.  David’s regular work assignments include fixing water main breaks, repairing broken fire hydrants and testing backflow devices.  Along with David’s everyday work activities, he also receives a very large percentage of the after-hours water and sewer call-outs.  He has been extremely dependable in all aspects of this work.  His supervisor says he is a pleasure to work with.

David is a member of the American Water Works Association and American Backflow Prevention Association.  Up until recently, David was the only field backflow tester for the City.  Through this responsibility, David has demonstrated dependability and professionalism.

David has been married to Krista for 12 years; and they have 2 daughters, Sienna and Sami, and one son, David.  He enjoys vacations with his family and hunting and fishing, especially when visiting his parents in Oklahoma.  You can tell David truly enjoys working for the City and is an asset to the Public Works Water Utility Division.
