Scott Olsen could be considered unique for the what he has accomplished while working for Price City.

But he's also one-of-a-kind in the state of Utah.

Olsen, who works as the Street and Fleet Supervisor for Price City, was recently awarded the Road Master award from the Utah Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) for successfully completing education in many areas that have proven to be useful with his job at Price City.

At a city council meeting on Wednesday evening, Olsen, who has worked for the city for 11 years, was presented with the Road Master certificate from Gary Sonntag, Price City Public Works Director.

Sonntag said that Olsen is unique for receiving the award as he is one of only four people in the state that have attained the award through LTAP. Sonntag estimated that to receive the award, Olsen participated in over 70 hours of classroom time learning about a variety of topics.

Olsen said he was thankful for the ability to do the training that has helped him with his responsibilities with the city.

"There is a definite benefit for the city," Olsen said of participating in the training programs.

LTAP works with entities around the state including Utah Department of Transportation, the Federal Highway Administration, local agencies around the state and more to provide things like technical assistance, training and workforce development and more.

Through the Road Scholar program, workshops are provided such as the basics of good roads, heavy equipment safety operations, roadway drainage, asphalt paving maintenance, storm water inspector and more.

Sonntag said Olsen's background of working with heavy equipment, long-haul trucking and in the coal mining industry have helped him in his position as a supervisor.

"Scott has a desire to improve not only to improve himself, but also his work as a supervisor with the city," said Sonntag. "The knowledge he applies to a lot of different areas have helped since he starting working for the city many years ago."

In receiving the award, Olsen joins Jim Harper of Naples City, Kevin Rasmussen of Sandy City and Dave Marble of Sandy as the only ones to have attained the Road Master award in the state.
