Senior Parks Maintenance Worker, Parks Division
Senior Park Maintenance Worker Steve Garcia is being honored as a Belt Buckle recipient. Over the past year, Steve has done an outstanding job leading the Volunteer Gardeners program, coordinating projects at the Sensory Garden, Bruce Ariss Way, and the Sunken Garden at Colton Hall. Steve also handles the West Side crew’s irrigation installation, repairs, and maintenance. One of Steve's many accomplishments this year was to landscape an area of Shoreline Park adjacent to the Coast Guard Pier, which improved the appearance of the area, and at the same time reduced water use and maintenance. Steve's plant and irrigation knowledge is a tremendous asset to the City of Monterey. He is always ready and willing to help out on any project that may come up, and he often teams up with the Craftsworkers to help with camp setups, welding projects, and irrigation repairs.
Steve also participated in our very successful Cutting Day community event and was a great help in coordinating the volunteers. Steve cares about Monterey, his co-workers and his work.
