During this week's commission meeting, Key West City Manager Patti McLauchlin recognized Saint Fort Hyppolite for his 20 years of service to the City of Key West.
Known by his coworkers as Hyppo, he started as a maintenance worker and was later promoted to maintenance technician.
"Hyppo has made a tremendous difference while working for many years in the cemetery," said McLauchlin. "His contribution to the cemetery has been fantastic and has kept the cemetery looking good. He will get a job done that should take a day in a couple of hours and ask what to do next, always with a big smile on his face. Hyppo is an outstanding employee and is a great value to the City of Key West."
McLauchlin presented Hyppo with a gold watch and a challenge coin commemorating his 20 years of dedicated service.
