City needs about a dozen more workers

COVINGTON, Ky. - Like to work in the great outdoors? 

The City of Covington’s Public Works Department is looking to hire about a dozen or more landscape and maintenance workers for the year.
“We’re looking for people who show up every day, who work hard, who like to work outside, and who enjoy accomplishments doing landscape-type jobs,” Director Rick Davis said. “You don’t need a college degree or any technical expertise.”
The City has already hired a dozen or so workers but needs double that, he said.
Hours are full-time through the week, and the job typically lasts through December.
To apply, see the “Public Works landscape and maintenance worker” listing on the City’s job openings webpage, HERE.
“This is a good opportunity that results in good experience and can become a good stepping stone to other employment,” Davis said. “We’ve had several people who excelled at this job go on to become permanent employees here, and others have used me as a reference to get jobs with other agencies or with private industry.”
As spelled out in the application, duties run the gamut from cutting grass to trimming weeds, pruning bushes, painting and repairing fences, sharpening tools, cleaning out drainage ditches, and painting crosswalks, among others.
There is no deadline for applying, but Davis said Public Works is looking to fill the positions as soon as possible.
