Metropolitan Council services are essential to this region’s economic vitality. Our workers treat the wastewater we all flush down our drains and toilets every day. They provide rides to people going to work, doctor’s appointments, and sporting events. They help elderly people and working families find housing they can afford.
Throughout the pandemic, the majority of Met Council employees worked on site — on buses and trains, at maintenance garages, wastewater treatment plants, and down in the sewers. These workers put themselves at risk to make sure our essential services could be delivered. They may be humble, but they showed up — like they always have — to get the work done. We’re proud of them.
