Sedona AZ (May 15, 2019) – The Sedona 2019 Rod Olsen Employee of the Year is Randy Scott, chief collections officer of the Wastewater Department. Scott was presented with the award May 2 at the city’s annual employee recognition event, held at Posse Grounds Park.
Randy has been employed by the city since 1997, beginning his tenure as a Wastewater Plant Operator. He was promoted to chief collections operator in January 2000. Over the past 19 years Randy has helped train and mentor many Wastewater Facility operators.
Scott was nominated for the award by his coworkers for consistently being a role model and demonstrating concern for his staff, both professionally and personally. His award nominations cited his participation in team building exercises including cleaning wet wells and oil changes, and his willingness to cover a shift for any coworker who needs time off because of an illness or family emergency. Scott was instrumental in researching and installing a new wastewater pipe that saved the city $50,000. thousand dollars.
Randy enjoys meeting and educating residents about wastewater operations, and often takes a backseat to ensure his staff receives recognition for a team effort.
