Team Tucker Spotlight - Marvin Hines

Marvin-HinesWhat does a Field Superintendent do?
Field Superintendents do their best to make sure the City is operating as smoothly as possible. One of the biggest concerns I would say would be safety, we want to hold our contractors accountable and making sure they abide by GDOT policies and procedures. Field Superintendents also receive different requests from citizens and make field observations that have to be relayed to the correct departments to be addressed. When we have certain projects that we want to implement, we go out and gather specific details and quantities allowing us to put a scope of work together that is then presented to Council.

What has been your career journey to Tucker?
I started out as a maintenance worker 17 years ago, then a heavy equipment operator, crew supervisor and now as a field superintendent. My journey has been one of many blessings that came with lots of ups and downs that definitely shaped me for my role here in Tucker.

How much of your time is spent out in the field versus in the office?
I’m an outdoors man so fortunately for me this job allows me to be out in the field about 85% of the time.

What is the best part of your job?
Believe it or not interacting with the citizens in this line of work you have to be a good listener.

What is the one thing people need to know about road safety, in your opinion?
Just being vigilant of the road, if we can observe what’s going on around us then we will know how to react and adjust.


Where would we find you in your free time?
You guys will definitely find me on my boat, I love fishing.

What were your best and worst subjects in school?
My best subject was Physical ED and my worst was math.

What’s your favorite flavor of ice cream?
I love chocolate.
