May 27, 2017 by  

The annual Employee Awards Ceremony and Luncheon of the City of Laurel was recently held and attended by the Laurel City Council and Mayor Craig A. Moe.

Several employees were recognized for completing 5, 10, 15, 25, 35 and 40 years of service to the city. In addition, 176 employees received Safety Awards for their use of safe work habits on the job, and who had had no injuries for at least six months. This included 46 people who had not had any accidents for at least 10 years.

Two teams received the Team Achievement Award from the City. Three members of the Police Department were recognized for their efforts to create and deliver in-service training programs to the rest of the department. They each received a certificate and a check for $100.

The other team consisted of seven individuals who implemented a new recreation software package that includes all the membership, facility, and program information of the city for the past nine years and rolled it out to the public.

The Meritorious Service Award was given to five employees who have made a significant contribution to the city, their department, their co-workers during the year.

Hiring a booklet printing company might be one way the city can let residents become aware of these distinguished employees and the contributions they have made to the city.
