Phil Sheveily has been the mechanic for the City of Marion Transportation Department for over 10 years. He inspects, diagnoses, adjusts, repairs, and replaces bus equipment, and performs related preventative maintenance functions. He also keeps records of all maintenance and monthly checkups, and advises the supervisor of parts that need to be purchased. Phil also orders all cleaning products and parts for the department. Phil drives to off-site locations when necessary to repair vehicles. He also goes to any accident involving a Marion Transit vehicle to inspect and determine if it is drivable.
Phil is a Certified Master Engine Machinist through the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). He is also certified through the National Rural Transit Assistance Program (RTAP) as a reasonable suspicion supervisor, and has the credentials to determine the right procedure in the event of an accident.
“Phil’s knowledge has saved the department and City of Marion a great deal of money over the years. We have very few buses that need outside repairs. Phil goes above and beyond his duties including helping Citywide Maintenance mechanics on some of their vehicles. He is always willing to lend a helping hand. Phil has even helped many employees after hours with their vehicle problems. He’s also quite a jokester. He can come up with some jokes that will have you rolling in laughter.”
