FREMONT, CO - John Hamilton, a 10-year employee in the Fremont County Department of Transportation (DOT), was honored in late December by the Board of County Commissioners as the 2010 Employee of the Year. Chairman Ed Norden noted that Hamilton's selection was decided upon by all of the Fremont County elected officials, according to a release on the County website.

Hamilton, heavy equipment mechanic, works at the Cañon City shop handling maintenance and repairs of county vehicles and heavy equipment. In a letter of nomination, Gary Weirton, fleet services supervisor, said Hamilton has a unique ability in trouble shooting problems and in fabrication work that is done in the shop to save dollars. Weirton went on to say "John always comes to work with a smile and positive attitude, creating a great working environment," the release stated.

In addition to a framed certificate noting his selection, Hamilton also received a $300 check as part of the annual Employee of the Year honor.
