Employee Recognition Program

The goal and purpose of the program is to recognize employees both for their service to the organization as well as individual and group contributions to the City’s mission and vision.

The Employee Recognition Committee, formed in the spring of 2016, developed 5 different types of recognition: Years of Service Award, Outstanding Service Award, Volunteer Award, Employee of the Quarter and Employee of the Year. Nominations submitted will be reviewed on a quarterly basis by Committee members. It is recommended that nominations be submitted in the same quarter that the event occurs.
