The Village of Belgium would like to congratulate and thank Department of Public Works associate, Pat Wester, for his 25 years of service.
DPW associate, Pat Wester, began his career with the Village of Belgium as Dept. of Public Works summer help in 1991. Having quickly learned his various tasks, Pat was hired full-time in the fall of 1992. He left the Village in 1995 to become a dispatcher with the Sheboygan and Ozaukee County Sheriff’s Departments, but returned to the Village in 1998, and has remained with us since then.
In addition to Pat’s duties as a DPW associate, he is a Certified Ground Water Operator, making him another valuable asset to the Village of Belgium. As an associate who wears many hats, Pat works with water meters, plows snow, mows grass, maintains our parks, streets, sanitary sewer mains, storm sewer mains, water mains and laterals, and any other jobs he’s called upon to complete.
Pat, thank you for being such an important part of the Village of Belgium Team!
