Published April 10, 2017

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, selected Little Canada, Minnesota, resident Timothy Paulus as one of its four Civil Servants of the Year for 2016.

The St. Paul District presents this award annually to the top three or four employees of its nearly 650-person staff. Paulus, who's worked for the Corps of Engineers for 30 years, is a senior
mechanical engineer at the district’s headquarters in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Paulus will receive his award in recognition of his outstanding leadership abilities, technical competence and professional commitment. He will receive his award at the 39th Annual Minnesota Federal Civil Servant of the Year Awards in Bloomington, Minnesota, at the Double Tree Hotel May 5.

“Mr. Paulus is an unequaled mechanical engineer and technical manager.” Said James Sentz, Paulus’s supervisor. “Tim is the “go-to” person for anything mechanical… [His] contributions to the District, Region and Nation are unequaled.  He is truly worthy of this award.”

Paulus represents the Corps of Engineers as chairman of a PIANC international working group in developing a report on rolling gates and movable bridges. He is also a Corps of Engineers instructor for Machinery Lubrication.

The nearly 650 U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, employees working at more than 40 sites in five upper-Midwest states serve the American public in the areas of environmental enhancement, navigation, flood damage reduction, water and wetlands regulation, recreation sites and disaster response.
