Earl Findley awarded the Mike Gilliland Award

Earl Findley officially started working for the city as a paid employee in March 2018 after working for the city as a contractor for over 40 years. His family started E.V. Cathodic Protection Service many years ago and he has worked on gas systems for most small communities in Kansas. His wealth of knowledge has been extremely beneficial to the city. He spent many years doing leak surveys, regulator reliefs and almost everything related to steel pipe. He is invested in public safety, manages gas trainings and certifications, and keeps necessary paperwork and mandated forms and manuals in order.  He helped develop the city’s long term maintenance plans for streets and worked on a GIS project to have all gas lines and streets entered into the mapping system, improving documentation, and needed upgrades.  Please join us in thanking Earl for his dedication, outstanding performance and significant contributions to his community and numerous other municipals in Kansas.
