on the occasion of his retirement.
Wayne Arnold began his career with the City of Battle Creek on October 6, 1997,
as an Equipment Operator I for the Field Services Division. During this time, Wayne proved himself to be a valuable asset to the community. His involvement with projects such as the cart barn at Binder Park Golf Course, Brice Pit and Takasaki Park construction are prime examples of this.

he continued to show his devotion to serving the community.
On January 24, 2011, he was promoted to the position of Downtown Maintenance Supervisor, a position he held until his retirement on May 22, 2018.

Wayne Arnold has proudly served the citizens of Battle Creek for over 20 years.
Wayne will be greatly missed by his co-workers, downtown merchants, and the citizens he has assisted during his career with the City of Battle Creek.
This Certificate is awarded with all due respect and honor to Wayne D. Arnold.
