During the May 16 meeting of the Dawsonville City Council, the mayor and council members took the time to recognize the April employee of the month, two longtime employees and the city’s public works staff for their hard work for the city. 

The April employee of the month was Public Works Operations Foreman Steven McNeal, who was recognized for his hard work and willingness to pitch in and help wherever he’s needed. 

“Steven’s exemplary attitude and work ethic along with his willingness to help everyone is the reasoning behind this outstanding employee,” City Manager Bob Bolz said. 

The mayor and council members presented McNeal with a certificate recognizing his accomplishment and recognition. 

Also during the meeting, the mayor and council recognized two longtime employees for their service to the city. 

The two employees recognized for their longtime service were Utilities Treatment Plant Operator Westin Lee, who has served the city for five years, and City Clerk Beverly Banister, who has served the city for seven years. Both employees were honored for their ongoing dedication to the city and presented with May service awards. 

Also during the meeting, the council members approved and Mayor Mike Eason signed a proclamation dedicating May 15 through 21 as National Public Works week and honoring the hard work of those who work in the public works department. The city’s public works crew includes Public Works Director Trampas Hansard, Public Works Operations Foreman Steven McNeal, Roads Equipment Operator Tony Seabolt and Roads Equipment Operator John Tatum.
