It is not often you hear of someone dedicating an amazing 46 years of service to an organization, but that is what John Lindroos dedicated to his career as grader operator for the County of Wetaskiwin.

At the end of June of this year, John Lindroos retired from the County of Wetaskiwin, after fulfilling a 46-year career as a grader operator for Division 3. Council and Public Works administration acknowledged John’s dedicated service to the county and thanked him for being someone who could be counted on to readily accept new challenges with equipment or service changes.

Garry Dearing, councillor for Division 3, advised “since the County of Wetaskiwin incorporation in 1958, Division 3 has only had two grader operators; John Lindroos for the past 46 years and Adam Litzenberger before that.”

John told council and administration he enjoyed his job and the people he worked with and that’s why he stayed for 46 years.

Reeve Kathy Rooyakkers thanked Mr. Lindroos for his dedication and commitment to the county and offered sincere congratulations to John on his much deserved retirement.
