During the Tuesday, February 15, City Commission meeting, officials recognized a group of eight City employees who won the quarterly Applause Card drawing. Applause Cards are internal awards given to employees who provide premier customer service, and each quarter, employees are chosen in a random drawing and recognized publicly at the meetings.
Employees recognized were: Joann Brown (Police), Warren Carroll (Public Works), Anthony Cassini (Police), Derek Fernandes (Police), Ray Kerner (Police), Delia Wharton (Human Resources), Lee White (Finance), and Sean White (Public Works).
“This is all about thanking you for your hard work and recognize, while on the job, doing something good and you are representing almost 300 other employees who received applause cards this quarter. We appreciate all your hard work and effort,” Mayor Roy Gold said.
Commissioners then recognized former City employee and Retired Captain Jeff Maslan for his outstanding work in Emergency Management for the City of Coral Springs. Maslan worked for the City more than 30 years and was a founder of the South Florida Hurricane Conference, bringing hurricane preparedness and awareness to our City. He also procured grant funding, allowing the City to upgrade the Public Safety Building with an Emergency Operations Center.
“I am so pleased to have the opportunity tonight to recognize Jeff for his work in creating our Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan. I, for one, am very proud of you and proud to know you and I thank you on behalf of everyone here and all of our citizens for all that your brought to our City,” Vice Mayor Claudette Bruck said.
