Recognition for longtime worker in Grand Lake

Recognition for longtime worker at Grand Lake. 9NEWS at 4 p.m. 9/22/16.

KUSA - Grand Lake is about as beautiful as a mountain town gets thanks in part to Bernie McGinn.

Bernie has worked in the Grand Lake Public Works Department since 1979.

Day in and day out he does everything to keep his community working. He fixes roads and signs, plows in the winter and keeps the park green in the summer.

“I have a great crew,” McGinn said. “We keep the town looking as nice as we can.”

Which might be the reason why Bernie is considered a hero around Grand Lake, just recently winning the Colorado Cities and Towns Municipal Hero award. 

It’s an award McGinn says he’s not sure how he got just doing his job. 

“It’s an unbelievable award. I still tingle sometimes thinking about it,” McGinn said.
