National Public Works Week is May 20 through 26! We appreciate our public works staff every week of the year, but in honor of NPWW, we'll be highlighting five public works employees with a new, "Get to Know Your City Employees." each day this week. First up is Fredo Pagan, whose work touches the lives of all city residents and visitors by ensuring that our parks and other public spaces are well-maintained. Anyone that knows Fredo knows that he is dependable and willing to do any task with a smile! Read on to lear more about Fredo.
Welcome to the City of Lancaster!
A relatively small city of 7 square miles and 60,000 residents, Lancaster City is located within driving distance of Washington DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, Delaware beaches and the Jersey shore. But the City of Lancaster is about so much more than our geographic location. Lancaster City is a place where historic preservation and a cutting-edge arts scene live and thrive side by side; a city of neighborhoods that are safe and welcoming; a city that encourages entrepreneurship and investment; a city that values the cultural, ethnic, and diverse lifestyles of our residents and guests.

The first time we saw Jameel Thrash’s name on a permit, we thought it must be a fake name. Who was this hero with the superpower of being able to grant zoning permission? After a thorough review of the rolls of city employers we concluded that this was indeed the coolest name of any public servant to ever serve the city of Lancaster — sorry, 19th-century Mayor Nathaniel Pierre Lightner (Natty Light for short), your reign is over.
We sat down to talk to Jameel in a first ever segment we’re calling, "Get to Know Your City Employees."
