Today, we highlight Knightdale Public Works Crew Leader John Stover and Operations Supervisor Larry Johnson.   Did you know that the Town of Knightdale police cruisers that patrol our town keeping us safe are in service due to the care John and Larry provide.  They and Public Works staff maintain all 80 fleet vehicles ranging from Public Works trucks, to Knightdale Police vehicles. This job truly keeps Knightdale running, and we are happy to have John and Larry on our Public Works staff.  When you see them around, please make sure to thank them!
