Staff Advisory Council commends the efforts of Facilities Services during the weather-related closing of the UMW Fredericksburg campus from Jan. 21 – 23, 2014. Despite severe cold weather, staff from the shops undertook the task of clearing and making safe for travel the steps, sidewalks, and roadways that connect the administrative buildings, academic buildings, and residence halls of this campus. Facilities’ efforts allowed resident students to continue making their way safely across campus.
Personnel from all shops were engaged around-the-clock in removing snow, chipping away ice accumulation, and spreading ice melt and sand by means of both manual and powered equipment. Those shops are:
Landscape & Grounds
Coordinating the day-shift/night-shift work, and communicating the on-going needs for snow removal fell principally to three individuals: John Wiltenmuth, Associate VP for Facilities Services; Joni Wilson, Director of Landscape and Grounds; and Daniel Quann, Director of Maintenance. Without their efforts the snow removal work would not have been as effective, or as efficient in returning the university to active status.
On behalf of your Staff Advisory Council,
A. Leslie Johnson, Jr.
President, Staff Advisory Council
