Kountze Maintenance's new guy
He's no stranger to highway maintenance or to Kountze. But Michael Tywater does have a new responsibility.
Michael is the new Maintenance Supervisor for Kountze Maintenance. In his new role, Michael is responsible for maintaining the state-maintained highways of Hardin County.
He began his TxDOT career in 1994 in Beaumont Maintenance. Afterwards, Michael transfered to the sign shop where he made signs for the district's 5500 lane miles of highway.
After a brief stint in the district's Transportation Operations section, Michael went to work as an Assistant Maintenance Supervisor in Kountze where he assisted Maintenance Supervisor Todd Dinger in the section's operations.
He now replaces Dinger who recently became Maintenance Supervisor for Beaumont Maintenance.
Don't expect to see Michael sitting behind a desk, though. He's a hands-on type of employee, willing to pick up a shovel just like anyone else.
Enjoy the new week,
