[ARCHIVED] Public Works Maintenance Worker Receives Award

Josh Dix Award

On November 17, the American Public Works Association Minnesota Chapter (APWA-MN) awarded Roseville Working Foreman Joshua Dix with the 2017 APWA-MN Maintenance Person of the Year.

Dix joined two other individuals being honored, including Ray Hanson from the City of Mound, who was named Superintendent of the Year, and Mike Lusien from the City of Saint Paul, who was named Supervisor of the Year. These individuals were selected by a panel of peers for meeting the highest standards of public works employees.

Dix started working for the City of Roseville in 2009. He demonstrated outstanding leadership skills and was promoted to Working Foreman in 2015. Among his accomplishments, he led Roseville’s effort to become one of the first Level 2 certified cities in the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency Smart Salt Training program and became an instructor.

Dix built a brine sprayer from scratch to reduce the amount of salt being used during a snowstorm. For this work, he received an Environmental Leadership Award from the Freshwater Society for reducing the amount of chlorides applied to city streets. Dix has embraced new technologies, encouraging the city to use the city’s asset management system.

“Josh is a current and future leader in our industry,” said Public Works Director Marcus Culver. “He will rise to the top of any organization that is lucky to have him. Fortunately, Roseville is lucky to claim him.”

APWA-MN is a professional organization dedicated to helping members provide quality services and facilities to the public. It promotes the theory and practice of the design, construction, maintenance, administration and operation of public works facilities and services.

Each year the Association recognizes outstanding employees in the public works field. Those recognized are noted for their innovative use of technology and equipment, project management and service delivery. The recipients have demonstrated outstanding service to citizens and fellow public works employees
