employee of month
David Neylon, posted and bonded roads coordinator, has been named the PennDOT Regional district Employee of the Month for July 2011.
Neylon was recently promoted to the posted and bonded roads unit as the posted and bonded roads coordinator. He quickly learned the requirements of the permitting process and excess-maintenance agreements, a news release said. He has developed several processes and tracking spreadsheets to assist the unit. He has worked many long hours to stay on top of the requests for permits and the review of agreements and maintenance plans. He promptly takes action on roadway damage.
Neylon is very methodical in evaluating problems prior to proposing solutions, the release said. Many of the templates and forms that Neylon either developed or helped to develop have been adopted for use statewide by PennDOT. This demonstrates the work he has been doing.
Neylon, a six-year PennDOT employee, lives in Williamsport.
