Pete Singleton, who serves as project manager for engineering and construction services for the City of Midwest City, was named the Midwest City Employee of the Year.
Mayor Matt Dukes said Singleton was selected in part for his drive to find new ways to go the extra mile for the city. Singleton has been known to consistently reevaluate projects to ensure no issues are repeated and for implementing professional cost saving best practices where applicable, Dukes said.
He also cited Singleton’s friendly demeanor and willingness to volunteer for jobs that most others wouldn’t take on.
Singleton has been with the city for 28 years. He previously served in stormwater management at the water plant before his current position.
In 2023, the city started an employee of the month program to recognize employees who demonstrate exceptional job performance, professionalism, collaboration, innovation, leadership, respect and/or volunteerism, going above and beyond to carry out the city’s mission to maximize the quality of life of our citizens through professional service, proper management and existing resources and appropriate planning.
The monthly winners were nominated for the employee of the year award.
Singleton was recognized at the Jan. 9 city council meeting.
