Rancho Cordova City Council Thanks Eagle Scout
The Rancho Cordova City Council will present a Proclamation of Achievement to Eagle Scout candidate, Zachary Burgess, at the City Council meeting on January 18th.
To help fulfill his community service requirement for the Eagle Scout badge, Zachary and his project team planted 10 trees in the City Hall grounds area in October. Zachary, a high school junior, planned and coordinated the project which included working with Todd Humphrey, Rancho Cordova’s Facilities Services Manager, and the Sacramento Tree Foundation which donated the trees.
“With their help and assistance, I identified specific sites to place trees on the north and west sides of the building to provide shade and a nice place for picnic or lunch breaks for workers at City Hall,” said Zachary. He then supervised a crew of 16 project workers during the tree planting.
“The City welcomes the opportunity to support and encourage the young members of our community,” said Humphrey. “They gain a new skill while providing a service for Rancho Cordova.”
Zachary will receive his Eagle Scout rank during a Court of Honor on Presidents Day in February.
