Cedartown, Georgia – March 21, 2017: Hard-working. Dependable. Helpful.
Those are three words that describe boom truck operator Timmy Ledbetter. Timmy has given 18 years of service to the Cedartown of Cedartown, and according to his supervisor, Public Works Director Kelvin Garmon, “is always willing to help work whenever he is needed.”
Timmy says he feels more like family than an employee here at the City of Cedartown. “We all get along well. We joke and cut up with each other but we get a lot of work done and done well.” Timmy operates one of the two boom trucks the City uses to pick up debris like limbs, leaves, and other yard waste on a weekly route. He can operate all of the other equipment in his department as well, Garmon said.
Timmy started out in the Water Maintenance Department, but transferred to the Street Department later. Timmy is crossed trained to help maintain the water distribution system and sewer collection system as well as street department operations.
A resident of Cedartown, Timmy is married and has two children. When he’s not working, he enjoys fishing. He also spends a good bit of time walking and biking along the Silver Comet Trail.
