Century Installs 900 Water Meters Ahead Of Schedule

March 31, 2011

The Town of Century has completed a project ahead of schedule to install about 900 new automated water meters. And Wednesday morning, Century Mayor Freddie McCall met with town employees and furnished breakfast in appreciation of a job well done.

“We have a small staff that did an amazing job working together as a team,” McCall said. “I am proud of the work they did and impressed that they finished two weeks ahead of schedule.”

The mayor said the men took an assembly line approach to the task, with one team digging up the old meters, another team removing them and a third team installing new meters.

    I want to take the time to let ya’ll know that I’m one of the Town of Century employee’s daughter. He was out sick when the picture was taken but to get on with what I half to say is that I feel like the men did a wonderful job. People only see bad things about everything on here. It didn’t tell how many hours was lost from spending time with family because the men wanted to get the job done asap to help save the town money. My dad is the one that goes and gets those inmates to work them. He has done it for years and will do it until he retires probably. They do a lot of work in the town to again save the town money. I feel like those men did a wonderful job and everytime I saw them everyone was working just not the inmates.

    I’m going to go out on a limb here just for fun:

    I bet that Eddie and Stacy did the digging, WL and Eddie did the removing and Joe and Larry did the installing.

    I noticed that it wasn’t mentioned that there were several prison workers that was doing the manual labor.
