Webb Katter was recognized as Employee of the Quarter at the regular meeting of the Newaygo County Board of Commissioners Wednesday January 24th.
Administrator Chris Wren delivered the award which read.“In the course of a workday you demonstrate a genuine desire to make sure the employees of Newaygo County are satisfied and always follow up on tasks you have completed. Through your actions it is clear you care about employees and in turn you are highly respected by them. You are always willing to go out of your way to help others, and are friendly and courteous in every situation. Your willingness to provide assistance to staff is extremely valuable.”
Mr. Katter is part of the county maintenance crew.
In other business the Board accepted a grant from the Fremont Area Community Foundation to help support the county’s Recycling program. Last spring the Board of Public Works assumed responsibility for the recycling program previously operated by Recycling for Newaygo County. Efforts are being made to open a site near Fremont and the county is working on a plan that will make the program sustainable.
Administrator Wren announced an upcoming training on workplace discrimination and sexual harassment being held next month for all Department Heads
