DeltonDelton joined the City as an Auto Mechanic on November 10, 1975.  Over the years, he held the positions of Mechanic II, Shop Foreman, Lead Mechanic, and Fleet Management Supervisor.  He now holds the position of Superintendent of Fleet.

Not only does his 45 years of service make him the longest-serving City employee, he has not taken a sick day since 1997, also a record.

We thank Delton for his years of dedicated service and we wish him and his family all the best in retirement!
