RESOLUTION NO. 910073

 

Commending City employees Katherine Wright, Robert Josephine and Judy Sill for contributing the winning entries in the Employee Suggestion Board sponsored September Best Suggestion Contest and expressing appreciation to all employees who submitted entries for that contest.

..P

WHEREAS, the Employee Suggestion Board sponsored a September Best Suggestion Contest in which eligible City employees were encouraged to submit suggestions of ways to increase efficiency and effectiveness in City government; and

 

WHEREAS, the contest was a great success as a total of 48 suggestions were received; and

 

WHEREAS, on December 17, 1990, the Board met to consider the suggestions submitted and concluded that Katherine Wright of Parks and Recreation was the winner of the grand prize (one evening at the Allis Plaza Hotel, a $60.00 gift certificate to the Savoy Grill, an employee suggestion mug and a Certificate of Appreciation) for her suggestion to discontinue sending out water bill refunds of less than One Dollar in order to decrease paperwork, eliminate postage and reduce the time for processing each refund through the mail room; and

 

WHEREAS, the Board also recognized two other employees' suggestions with certificates of honorable mention, employee suggestion mugs and $50.00 cash awards: Robert Josephine of Public Works for his suggestion to have all City vehicles and employees participate in the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department's "Thumbs Up, Buckle Up" seat belt program, and Judy Sill of Public Works for her suggestion to establish a direct telephone line between the Police Department tow release desk and the City tow lot; and

 

WHEREAS, the many thoughtful suggestions offered by the employees participating in this contest demonstrate the attention to detail and dedication to efficient City government of the many City employees who daily provide necessary services to their fellow citizens for which too little credit is given; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby commend City employees Katherine Wright, Robert Josephine and Judy Sill for their winning entries in the Employee Suggestion Board sponsored September Best Suggestion Contest and express their sincere appreciation to all employees who contributed suggestions for consideration by the Board; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that this Resolution be spread upon the Minutes of the Council in testimony thereof and that copies hereof be presented to the three employees who submitted the winning entries in token of the appreciation of the Mayor and Council for the thoughtful contributions of these employees and others toward making this City the best that it can be.
