  Seattle City Light Honors Exceptional Employees
  SEATTLE -- Mayor Paul Schell, Councilmember Heidi Wills and City Light Superintendent Gary Zarker will congratulate winners of the utilitys prestigious Light, Power and Pride Awards at a ceremony on Thursday, May 10, 1-3 p.m., at the Dome Room, 700 Third Ave., Seattle.

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

Among the honorees:

A community achievement award will be presented to cable splicer Ed Hill, who volunteers countless hours as a mentor for at-risk youth with the Community for Youth Program. His co-workers say, Eds sense of caring extends to the work place as well.

A customer service award will go to meter electrician, Blot Rmah, who receives frequent praise for his professionalism and for going the extra mile. On one occasion, he initiated immediate repairs to a cable with burnt insulation, which posed a serious fire hazard to a multi-family building.

The Tolt Runner Repair Team will receive a Money Saver Award. Putting their heads and skills together, they performed difficult, complex repairs to the water wheel at the Tolt Hydroelectric Project, saving the utility millions of dollars.

Each winner receives $500. The maximum team award is $2,500.

Todays event is Seattle City Lights seventeenth annual Light, Power & Pride Employee Recognition Ceremony. For more information, visit cityofseattle.net/light/aboutus/lpp/.
