The Monroe County Commission presented a 10-years-of-service pin to Lower Keys Roads and Bridges heavy equipment operator Donald Baty at Tuesday’s meeting. Baty began working for the county in November 2012 as a maintenance worker II. Less than a year later, in July 2013, he was promoted to heavy equipment operator.

“Donald is a reliable, hardworking member of the Lower Keys road crew, and his personnel file contains numerous letters of thanks and commendations from residents he has assisted throughout the years,” said Judith Clarke, director of Engineering. “One such letter referred to him as an artist for his equipment skills while repairing Hurricane Irma-damaged roads in Little Torch Key.”
