  • Could Ocean Ridge pass an ordinance that the Public Works Supervisor could never be replaced?  Kind of like what the town is doing for the police.  It would certainly make things less stressful knowing that you had a job for life no matter what.  

  • Thank you Katherine.  Physical work is not a good fit for me.  

  • Hello Mr. Gapp,

    Because the position requires in-person physical work, we cannot allow work from home for this position.

    Take good care,


  • Does this position allow working from home?  After six weeks of covid holiday it’s hard to get motivated for that 9 to 5 thing.  Would it be possible to come into the office like one day a week?
