It was all smiles in Mayor Dave Earling’s office as Jon Lein, Wastewater Treatment Plant Operator, and wife Bev dropped in to accept a framed print in honor of Jon’s retirement from 30 years of service to the city and citizens of Edmonds. Jon’s last day was July 31.
“Retirement after 30 years of working doing a job I love is an adjustment. It’s only been a couple of weeks, and I already miss the great people, but I sure don’t miss the drive,” he laughed.
Living on Camano Island, Lein’s commute has become increasingly rough over the past few years with the buildup of traffic on I-5.
Lein plans to stay active and engaged in the Camano Island community, working with the Friends of Camano Island Parks. and volunteering at the local animal shelter.
