Jason Ewell, Week of February 28, 2011
Jason Ewell, a street maintenance worker in the Municipal Development Department, is being honored for going above and beyond his job duties.
During the recent winter storm, Ewell was driving his salt spreader when he came across a stranded woman. Ewell stopped his truck to make sure the she was safe and okay. He discovered her car was stuck and unable to move due to the ice and snow build up on the road.
Ewell helped her by spreading extra salt under and in front of her car. This allowed her to move her car and get home safely.
“I am very appreciative for the above and beyond job Mr. Ewell did to help me,” said the woman who was stranded. “I am glad to see a prompt response of city employees out on our streets keeping them safe!”
