February 2017 Employee of the Month

Ramon Velasco

 Parks & Leisure Department

Ramon Velasco was employed by the City of Porterville as a part-time Parks Maintenance Worker Aide for the Parks and Leisure   Services Department in May 2003.  He became a full-time Parks Maintenance Worker I in August 2005. Ramon was promoted to Parks Maintenance Worker II in March of 2007 and again in March 2014 to his current position of Parks Maintenance Worker III. 

Ramon’s primary duty is overseeing the landscape maintenance districts and working with the contractors.  He also is in charge of the day-to-day projects for the division.  Ramon always displays a great attitude, possesses a strong work ethic, and is a true team player when it comes to helping his      co-workers. 

Ramon is married to Maria and has a son, Jose and a daughter, Destiny.  His hobbies include horseback riding, Mexican rodeo, watching sports, and coaching his kids’ sports teams.  Ramon states that his favorite part of the job  is being outdoors and that he is happy to be   a part of the Parks and Leisure Services Department. 

Recently Ramon performed an exemplary deed.  On January 18 at 8:30 a.m., Ramon was driving down Morton when he witnessed a truck crash into an electrical panel on the corner of Morton and Indiana.  Ramon immediately stopped and assisted the driver in getting the vehicle to a safer stop.  It was at this time that Ramon noticed the driver all of a sudden being non-responsive and called 9-1-1.  In the short time it took for the paramedics to arrive, the driver passed away due to medical complications. Last week the family of the deceased individual was very appreciative of Ramon’s efforts and we are very proud of him as well.
