The City of Joliet is proud to announce that Public Assets Supervisor Mike Eulitz received the 2019 Samuel A. Greeley Award at the American Public Works Association (APWA) Southwest Branch of the Chicago Metro Chapter awards ceremony on January 8, 2020.
The Samuel A. Greeley Award is given to an individual who has continuously served the public in an official capacity and contributed to the advancement of Public Works and thereby improving the quality of life for those who live and work within that community.
Eulitz has served the City of Joliet and its residents for 31 years, beginning as a civil engineer and steadily increasing his knowledge and responsibility to his current role. As public assets supervisor, Eulitz oversees the roadways, fleet services, buildings and grounds and forestry department in addition to the supervision of all City-owned facilities, such as Union Station and Route 66 Stadium.
Eulitz enjoys the challenges each day brings and strives to complete every project his departments undertake with integrity. “I have always had a great team of talented people to work with on every project we encountered and I contribute much of my success to the support they provided over the years,” he says.
Public Works Director and 2018 Greeley Award recipient Jim Trizna has worked with Eulitz for most his career, stating “Mike is an outstanding engineer and truly advanced himself and his career from civil engineer to the roadways engineer to asset management supervision. He excels as a supervisor and manages these complex divisions adeptly.”
