Nominate a coworker

The purpose of the SPIRIT award is to recognize City employees that best represent the core values of our organization as demonstrated in their attitude, work ethic and customer service.  up to three awards are given quarterly. Winners receive a $250 cash prize, a day off with pay and a City challenge coin.

To nominate a employee for the SPIRIT award, email a written statement in WORD format to Leslie Acerra, Executive Assistant, describing how the nominee demonstrates the core values of service excellence, producing A+ results, initiative, responsibility, innovation and teamwork. All nominations are evaluated by a cross functional City team consisting of former SPIRIT award winners. Team members will independently review each application and make their recommendation to the city administrator.
