Nov 20 - A nice email from a City of Sacramento customer for our "Yard Waste Man" Kenny: Good morning! I just wanted to send praise for the yard waste man who serviced my address for the past two week (11/8 and 11/15). He waves to my son, and even gets out to give him high fives. My son is three years old, and wants to be a yard waste man when he grows up. In fact, that's what he was for Halloween. Not a garbage truck man, a yard waste man! So, having a City employee do what this man does is truly special, and brings pure joy to my son's heart...and to mine, as well. I don't even know his name, but he is truly so thoughtful and goes above and beyond to deliver unparalleled customer service. The City is lucky to have him. Give this man a raise! Read Post
