Quincy was presented and honored before the City Commission on Monday, April 1, 2013
Quincy Stanley, Refuse Equipment Operator, began his career with the City of Sarasota as a Landscape Tech in the Public Works Department in 2006. In 2009, Quincy was transferred to the Solid Waste division during the City’s reductions. He has held several positions over the past four years which makes him a versatile employee.
When residential Solid Waste drivers are behind or their truck breaks down, Quincy is the first one to jump in and assist them. He is often asked for his guidance in work related or non-work related matters. His opinion is valued by the rest of the team. Quincy’s attendance and work ethic are exceptional. He can be counted on to handle many assignments that come his way.
Now that the City has reacquired several parks from Sarasota County, keeping those parcels of land clean is important to our residents and visitors who utilize the area. Quincy’s responsibilities shifted when he moved from a residential driver to assist with the emptying of the litter containers located in our City parks. He performs this work with the same smile and positive attitude.
The Public Works department received an e-mail from a Manatee County Sheriff’s Officer who wanted to commend Quincy for an act of kindness he performed away from work. On January 21, 2013, Quincy assisted two elderly women that had run out of gas on US 41. He not only stopped to assist them, but gladly provided gas for their vehicle which he keeps on hand in the back of his truck. Quincy’s quick thinking kept the deputy from having to push the vehicle out of the road. This is the kind of ‘can-do’ attitude he exhibits at work as well. Quincy’s gesture of kindness put the City in a very favorable light as he was still wearing his City work uniform.
Quincy’s dedication and efforts are appreciated. Congratulations!
