Greenfield DPW Recognizes Dennis Macleay for 38 Years of Service

GREENFIELD – Dennis “Denny” Macleay has done it all across his 38-and-a-half years of experience with the Greenfield DPW. 

“I worked in the rubbish department, traffic department, I worked on the sewer treatment plant and the water department. I’ve worked in all the other departments, too,” said Macleay. 

On Friday, June 14, Mayor Roxann Wedegartner, Greenfield DPW Director Marlo Warner and DPW staff honored Macleay for his invaluable service to the department. Macleay was awarded a plaque and certificate to commemorate his dedicated work ethic and consistently positive impact on the DPW team.

“He’s been a great leader. He’s been a dedicated employee throughout his time here. I will miss him dearly,” said DPW Director Marlo Warner. 

“By all accounts, Denny is loved by many. I wish him a happy retirement,” said Mayor Wedegartner.

Macleay initially began working for the Greenfield DPW in a part-time capacity after time in military service. 

“I started part-time when I got out of the service. After that was done, they called me a month later, asking me about a full-time job,”’

Macleay gradually worked his way to becoming a crew chief during his time with the Greenfield DPW. He provided steady guidance through various critical situations, whether he was addressing early-morning water main breaks or a sudden water emergency.
