  Seattle City Light Thanks Employees
For Community Achievement, Customer Service, Innovation
 

SEATTLE -- A Seattle City Light employee who adopted nine special-needs children with varied cultural backgrounds is one of those being recognized for outstanding achievement at the utility's sixteenth annual Light, Power and Pride Awards ceremony.

The ceremony takes place Thursday, March 23, 1:00 - 3:00 p.m., in the Dome Room, Arctic Building, 700 Third Avenue, Seattle. Mayor Paul Schell, Councilmember Heidi Wills and City Light Superintendent Gary Zarker will congratulate the employees.

Twelve individuals and 12 teams will receive awards in one of four categories: Money Saver; Community Achievement; Creativity and Innovation, and Customer Service.

Money Saver Awards will be presented to Hamad Zadeghol, whose correction of a mistake in a metering system returned $363,000 to City Light; and an accident prevention team whose strategies to reduce worker-compensation claims saved the utility more than $800,000 last year.

A Community Achievement Award goes to maintenance laborer Jose Mendoza, who has dedicated his life outside the workplace providing a family for nine abandoned children with special needs and varied backgrounds. He manages to provide superb customer service in his job as well as pursue his humanitarian efforts.

City Light's Transformer Shop Crew receives a team Customer Service Award for its quick repair of more than 500 transformers damaged during the early-August lighting storms. The crew worked round the clock to inspect, repair and test transformers, enabling City Light to turn lights back on for customers.

Each winner receives a cash award of $250.
