Casteel named 2013 City of Duncan employee of the year

DUNCAN — The City of Duncan on Wednesday recognized Scott Casteel as its 2013 employee of the year.

Casteel is the supervisor of the streets department, a position he’s held for more than four years.

“It’s really an honor,” Casteel said. “It’s an honor. Everyone respects you to vote for you like this.”

The award was presented Wednesday by Duncan Mayor Gene Brown.

The employee of the year is chosen by a vote of city workers.

  The mayor said Casteel’s selection is a reflection of the respect employees have for him.

“To win an award like this from your peers, it means a lot,” Brown said.

Casteel admitted he was surprised by the selection, but he figured something was happening when Brown and City Manager Jim Frieda gathered all the street department employees together.

A city employee since 1999, Casteel said he’s enjoyed his time with the streets department and looks forward to continuing his career with the city.

“It’s a really good place to work,” Casteel said. “You get to work with family and friends. This is just another family.”

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
