Denise Robbins, Nick Burns and Tanner Arwine

Congratulations to Nick Burns of the Information Technology Department on being named our R-SPIRIT Employee of the Year. Congratulations also to finalists Denise Robbins of the Police Department and Tanner Arwine of the Parks & Recreation Department. 

The R-SPIRIT award is presented annually to an employee who exemplifies the city’s core values of Respect, Service, Productivity, Integrity, Responsibility, Innovation and Teamwork. Nominations are submitted by city employees and the finalists and winner selected by a committee of their peers.

Nick has worked for the city for 9 years as the IT Communications Analyst. He was recognized for his teamwork in assisting the Police Department with the installation and configuration of vehicle and body cameras. His nomination stated: “Nick took it upon himself to guarantee the success of this project.  What drove Nick to achieve this success?  TEAMWORK!  He knew the responsibility the I.T. Department held for this project, and he simply was not going to give up.” The nominator also stated: “Nick treats everyone with respect, he values any type of input from others (good or bad)… Nick is always positive, and will always take the time to assist others.  The city is lucky to have an employee like Nick Burns.”

The award was presented during an employee reception on February 12, 2019. The City Manager’s Office and City Council also recognized the following employees who have reached their 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30 year anniversaries with the city.
