During the 7:00 pm meeting, City Council members recognized Superintendent of Fleet Delton Grissett (accompanying photo) for 45 years of service to the City. He retires at the end of December.
Delton joined the City as an Auto Mechanic on November 10, 1975. Over the years, he held the positions of Mechanic II, Shop Foreman, Lead Mechanic, and Fleet Management Supervisor. He now holds the position of Superintendent of Fleet.
Not only does his 45 years of service make him the longest-serving City employee, he has not taken a sick day since 1997, also a record.
Delton is a dedicated Coastal Carolina University fan, and he and his grandchildren go to every game. He is also a huge supporter of the North Myrtle Beach High School Chiefs.
He enjoys helping people, especially those who are less fortunate, and loves cooking and watching ballgames with his wife.
We thank Delton for his years of dedicated service, and we wish him and his family all the best in retirement!
