He dedicates countless hours reviewing contract specifications and drawings, daily laboratory results and operations reports, preparing comprehensive monthly operating and discharge reports, while at the same time introducing innovative ideas in the treatment process. Christopher Younger is a fine example of a dedicated and professional Harford County employee and would be an excellent choice for the Harford County “Employee of the Month” award”.
Mr. Younger began his career with the Harford County Department of Public Works in 1991 as a Utility Worker III. He attended night school and earned his degree, while working “up the ladder” to a senior management position.
