At a meeting of the Dawsonville City Council held on April 19, 2021, council members recognized several employees for their years of ongoing service to the city. 

Council members recognized Planning Director David Picklesimer as both the March 2021 Employee of the Month and the Employee of the first quarter of the year.

“We voted for our employee of the quarter which came from employees January, February and March, and David was selected by his fellow staff as the employee of the quarter,” Bolz said. 

Bolz said that Picklesimer was selected for the honor based on the great work he does in his department. 

“He’s done a fantastic job in planning and zoning, best that department has ever been,” Bolz said. “If you’ve seen any work coming out of there, it’s just outstanding work.” 

Dawsonville Mayor Mike Eason and the members of the city council presented Picklesimer with a plaque, and Eason thanked Picklesimer for his work for the city. 

“The council has no say-so whatsoever, this is all done by our staff and they select who they think is the person for this,” Eason said. “Thank you very much for what you do David, you’ve been a good leader for our city.” 

In addition to recognizing Picklesimer, city council members also acknowledged several other city employees as part of their April service awards. Council members recognized Utilities Billing Clerk and Deputy City Clerk Tracy Smith for four years with the city, Treatment Plant Operator Blake Croft for five years with the city, and Public Works Operations Manager Trampas Hansard for 13 years with the city. 

All the employees who were recognized at the meeting were presented with certificates acknowledging their years of service with the city.
