Week In Review: Nov 30th - Dec 4th

Tyler DuBord: Facility Services Manager

Greetings from the North Metro!

Hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving Holiday. My wife and I made the trek out to western MN, to spend time with her family, where we ate a lot of turkey, relaxed, and watched the Vikings beat the Falcons! It’s a 3 hour drive, but it's all worth it, while in good company and enjoying good food made from scratch by the family.

Monday morning, we woke up to 4+ inches of plowable snow, making this the first push for our snow removal crews. We have very competitive pricing, so if you had any issues with your current vendor during this first snowfall event, please inquire about a bid for your property. It can snow all it wants, as I love the snow and snowmobiling. Last season was pretty frustrating for me, with the lack of snow. I think I rode the sled maybe once or twice, making it a disappointing year in that regard.

Any regular readers out there will notice that Joel has been with us for several months now and has transitioned into his role with exceptional confidence. The great part of my job, is to help train and grow with new managers that come on board and take over part of my previously existing territory. It was great working alongside Joel for the first couple months, as we made the transition. I’ve been able to assist in getting him acclimated to those accounts that I’ve managed and established relationships with over the years. I have the upmost confidence in Joel and trust he will service our company well, as he move towards the next phase in his position with City Wide.

Hope everyone has a great weekend and stays safe out on the slick roads!
