Cliff Sonnenberg, Garden City Electric Superintendent, Receives 40 Year City Service Award, LKM

Cliff Sonnenberg accepts the 40 year City Service Award from Governor Colyer at the 2018 League of Kansas Municipalities (LKM) Conference on October 8, 2018 in Topeka.

Cliff made this statement about what he would like to share about his time in his Municipal Utility:

“I would encourage younger linemen who are just starting out in the electric utility trade to consider working for the municipal utility in their hometown.  It is very rewarding to be able to assist your neighbors, friends, and local organizations that make up the core fabric of your community.  Get involved in making your community a better place to live work and play.  It’s been an honor to be a part of a great team with the Electric Division.  It’s been exciting to upgrade our system with a voltage conversion project to create a more reliable and cost effective system for our customers.  It’s also been rewarding to have a well-trained line crew that we are able to send to other communities at a moment’s notice when we receive mutual aid calls for help.  We have awesome, dependable, and talented employees that work hard to serve their customers every day.”

All of us at KMEA would like to Congratulate Cliff on his accomplishment!
