For City of Mar­i­on Build­ing and Grounds Man­ag­er David Slush­er, there is no project too large or small in and around City Hall. 

Since hired in Feb­ru­ary 2022, Slush­er has led the com­ple­tion of two park­ing lot improve­ment projects, roof replace­ment, ceil­ing repair, and new wayfinding/​identification sig­nage in around the build­ing among oth­er projects.

After 30 years of trav­el­ing to and from mul­ti­ple states over­see­ing mul­ti­ple build­ing main­te­nance for his pre­vi­ous employ­er, Slush­er is thank­ful to have his job with the City.

I love my job,” Slush­er said. I love work­ing with the peo­ple here, and it’s nice to have nights and week­ends at home.” 

Slush­er has one assis­tant, and works with con­trac­tors for most major projects. With lim­it­ed man­pow­er, Slush­er also works with oth­er depart­ments and the Grant Coun­ty Sheriff’s Inmate Work Crew to tack­le cer­tain tasks.

May­or Jess Alum­baugh said, David is a team play­er who con­stant­ly goes above and beyond the require­ment of his every­day duties to ensure that City Hall remains oper­a­tional and safe for those who work and vis­it here.”

Chief of Staff Mike Fly­nn added, David has been a tremen­dous asset to our team. His atten­tion to detail and his abil­i­ty to fore­see poten­tial issues have proven invaluable.”

I’m always around,” Slush­er explained. And I work direct­ly with all the con­trac­tors when there’s an issue that I can’t fig­ure out myself.”
