I hope you are all doing well. We have been busy at Town Hall, partnering with Union County on the largest water transfer project in North Carolina is monumental.
You can be proud that Norwood Town Hall did not have to acquire one additional staff member to manage this colossal undertaking. Many towns have project managers solely dedicated to handle such large tasks.
We are also moving along nicely with rehabilitating our wastewater treatment plant. This is a $4.27 million project. It is the largest if not one of the largest projects Norwood has ever done, behind the water project mentioned above. We are presently in negotiations with the lowest construction bidder.
We are also rehabilitating a long section of our sewer collection system. this $2+million project will aid us in keeping your sewer treatment costs as low as possible. Our tax money and water & sewer revenue is hard at work, as we are, to give us maximum value.
On a more personable note, please welcome Gina Huseman, our new Customer Service Specialist, who just joined our team on October 19th. She has a total of over 13 years and wants to bring a fresh face to our neighborhood.
Customer service is extremely important to her, and she wants to know what the towns’ needs and wants are to make our service better. This has always been her goal since she started working on her family’s farm in Pennsylvania, making sure we make great connections with everyone we meet.
Gina currently lives alone, with her French Bulldog Noah. He is a sweet pup, who has never met a stranger. She moved to North Carolina to be closer to her immediate family, which is important to her.
Family values, integrity and honesty are all qualities that are important to her. One of her mottoes is, “life is certainly short, but it is sweet”.
When you are in Town Hall, welcome her. I am excited for Norwood to have her on the team.
