The department congratulates Rick Butler and Phylicia Mau as Department Employees of the Year through a nomination and review process. Each received a plaque, and their names have been added to the plaques in the conference room in the main office.

These awards were announced at the Groundhog Day breakfast celebration. Pancakes and sausages were enjoyed by all.
