4/28/22 @ 9:00 a.m. – In January 2022, County Manager, Taco Pope, instituted new Customer Care Standards to govern both internal and external interactions and to create a more positive workplace environment. (See original story here)
Part of this initiative includes an Employee Recognition Program in which employees can nominate co-workers who have demonstrated Nassau County’s Customer Care Standards and/or who has provided exceptional performance beyond established duties and responsibilities.
We are pleased to announce that we have two “Employees of the Quarter”, John Horne and David Brown, for the period of January – March 2022. They were both given this award based on selfless actions they did together. They went above and beyond when a Nassau County resident entered the Convenience Recycle Center during a heavy rain storm and asked for assistance as she had two small children in her vehicle and was impacted by a flat tire. David and John immediately took action without regard to the weather and worked together to change her tire. Thanks to their efforts, this resident was able to get herself and her children home safely.
This is just one small example of their service and dedication to the County. Both employees work tirelessly to perform closure and post-closure activities as required by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) for the County’s landfill sites in Callahan, Bryceville and Lofton Creek. They also haul waste received at the Convenience Recycle Center to the Camden County Landfill and pull recycle bins from our sites around the County and hauls the materials to the appropriate recycling plant.
If you see John or David, be sure to congratulate them on being Nassau County’s “Employee of the Quarter”.
