Plymouth Declares Friday “Glen Willey Day”
Glen Willey has worked for the city of Plymouth for 47 years. That distinction makes Willey the longest serving employee in the city’s history. Willey started work as a part-time water and sewer worker right out of high school. He has served in the city’s utilities department ever since.
When Willey started his career, Plymouth was a village and in his words, “everyone did everything back then.” During Willey’s time, Plymouth has grown from a village of about 18,000 people to become Minnesota’s seventh largest city with nearly 80,000 residents.
Willey most recently worked in upgrading the city’s water meter system. He says he enjoyed working with the public to solve problems.
Friday, June 28 , will be Glen Willey Day in the city of Plymouth.
