Building technician has been keeping county buildings running since 2018

County officials gave hearty congratulations to the person who keeps the city buildings running at a Sept. 13 luncheon.

Adams County Building Maintenance Technician Dale Snyder was named the Adams County Employee of all-Season recognition for his dedication to maintaining the buildings’ core internal operations, according to a news release. 

The board of commissioners honored Snyder with the annual Employee Recognition Luncheon on Sept. 13. 

Adams County’s recognition program nominated and chose Snyder as the Fall Employee of the Season winner. It’s in the Unsung Hero category that honors employees’ astounding work behind-the-scenes. 

“I was very honored to receive this award. There are a lot of employees in Adams County, so I am fortunate to win it,” Snyder said. “You don’t win awards like this by yourself; it takes a team. My boss, Erik Bryant, promotes teamwork. He says to set the bar high and maintain it with teamwork.” 

Snyder started working for Adams County as a Building Technician in the Facilities & Fleet Management Department in 2018. 

According to the nomination submitted to the county, Snyder goes above and beyond for the team and much of what he does is unseen and unheard.

The nomination for Snyder called out how vital he is to county operations.

“Do you ever wonder how your flickering light is fixed?” the nomination asked. “How new pictures in your new office are hung? How the speed of a closing door fixed so it does not slam shut? How did the air conditioning get fixed when it is 95° outside? How did the ice machine suddenly work again? The answer to those questions and many more is Dale.”

The nomination also called out his positive attitude, saying he greets co-workers and staff by name and always smiles. 

“Dale is a devoted, talented, and exceptional Adams County employee – the glue that keeps the building together,” the nomination reads. “Dale is acknowledged for his hard work, dedication, and commitment to our county and its residents.

Adams County government building has about 2,680 employees serving 520,000 residents.   Employees selected for the “Employee of All Seasons” recognition are nominated and voted by coworkers, the Recognition, and Adams County residents.

The employee recognition luncheon is an annual event recognizing employees with over 20 years of service.
