Brent McMillan, a crew leader for the Smith County Road and Bridge Department, was recognized for 25 years of service to the county.
County Engineer Frank Davis said McMillan began working for his department as an operator I and worked his way up to lead a crew that works primarily in the Precinct 2 area. When the foreman is absent, he steps in to fill the role, Davis said.
Davis described McMillan as “very dependable,” and said he can always count on him to take care of any issues that come up.
“I don’t hear much from him and that is a good thing,” Davis said during a Tuesday Commissioner Court meeting. “It means he is doing a good job.”
