The Village of Newberry is celebrating and honoring employee Jim Brown as he finishes 26 years of service.

Jim started his career in the Department of Public Works in 1994 and has served as a licensed Wastewater Treatment Operator since 2015.

“Jim is very dedicated and hard-working,” said Superintendent George Blakely.

Interim Village Manager Allison Watkins said, “Jim has been a reliable and steadfast member of the Village staff. We are happy that he is able to begin his retirement, but he will be missed.”

Jim finishes his last day of work on June 26. He plans to spend more time landscaping his yard and gardens.
