City Kicks off Public Service Employees Recognition Week

The city of Olmsted Falls today honored 85 of their public employees by proclamation for their work exemplifying the city's efforts in helping the Olmsted Falls achieve its Citywide Vision of fostering a healthy, vibrant Community in which to work, live and play.

The week of May 1st through May 7th recognizes the everyday work of public servants.  Public employees in the United States and around the world take part in the annual celebration honoring the men and women serving America as federal, state, and local government employees.

Americans proudly carry forward this tradition of service, which has built our nation and strengthened its promise. According to Mayor Anne Marie Donegan, "This week, we recognize all those who dedicate their lives to this noble pursuit, and we celebrate the tremendous difference they make every day."

Council President Jay Linn said, "It is important to take the time to recognize those who consistently perform above and beyond the call of duty to improve the quality of life for all residents."

Public Service Employee week recognizes public service as a calling, which has helped improve the lives of so many.  During this week, residents and employees alike are reminded that public service embodies our sense of shared values and our drive to serve a cause much greater than ourselves -- a chance to leave our mark, chart a brighter future and give back to residents, our community and the entire nation.  

 "I am honored to recognize the great people who dedicate their lives and strive every day to help the community of Olmsted Falls," explained Mayor Donegan.  "We are committed to lifting our public servants and recognizing the outstanding work they do.  We expect the best from our public servants and it's important they feel valued, engaged, and part of a much broader effort to make Olmstead Falls an even greater community."
