By: Rich Hosford

The Burlington Board of Selectmen recognized a town employee who recently received an award from a national organization for his hard work and dedication. 

 

Department of Public Works Director John Sanchez informed the board that Water Plant Manager Russell Makiej recently received recognition from the American Water Works Association. The award says he is being recognized “For consistent and outstanding service in providing a quality water supply to the public.”

 

Sanchez said that this year only two people were recognized from all of New England. 

 

Town Administrator John Petrin said the award was well deserved. 

 

“We put him in that position a year ago and he’s done a great job,” he said. “He’s improved communication and morale in the department.” 

 

Makiej has been with the department since 1999.
