When a gas line was discovered under a main road during excavation for a drainage ditch, the Village of Loreauville, La., needed CenterPoint Energy’s help to lower the gas line quickly and reopen the road. A grateful mayor sent a letter of thanks after Shannon Newman, Troy Decuit and their crew joined the village’s crew and local inmates to complete the task in 24 hours despite extremely heavy workloads.
“Your dedicated employees understand the need for public service,” wrote the mayor. “The people in the trenches can relate a positive or negative image for a company. Mr. Shannon, Mr. Decuit and all of your work crew make CenterPoint Energy shine.”
