Meet Northampton County's Maintenance Guys
At Northampton County Council's final budget hearing on November 9, most of the Maintenance Department was sitting in the audience. Painters, HVAC guys, carpenters. Were they there to complain about their boss, Public Works Director Stan Rugis? As it happens, they were there at his invitation. Rugis had each of these maintenance workers introduce himself to Council and explain the vital but often unnoticed role they play in making County government work.
