TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - The City of Tyler recognized a baby who completed the Infants at Work program.

City Utilities Director Kate Dietz and her daughter, Livia, began the program in August. The pilot program was designed to support employees of working families with the transition to parenthood by allowing them to bring their infant children to work with them until they are about six months old.

Dietz said, “My mind would be halfway with her wherever she is. So, it’s better that she’s really here with me so I don’t have to have half of my mind is split off thinking about that. She’s just right there and she was just so well behaved and such a joy to have in the work place. It’s been great for morale in the office. She’s included in everything.”

Livia took part in a retirement ceremony Wednesday at a city council meeting.
