Each January, Missoula County’s Chief Planning Officer presents an award for outstanding public service to one of our non-management CAPS staff. Previous recipients were Jamie Erbacher and Mitch Doherty, who set the bar very high. This year’s recipient is Jennie Dixon, a Planner IV who has now raised the bar once again with her commitment and approach to public service.
On a daily basis Jennie demonstrates her value as a professional to other staff, elected officials, the County in general and to the public. She is deeply committed to public service, is a tireless worker who also brings warmth to County interactions with members of the public. Jennie is an excellent and caring listener who takes whatever time is needed to help the public, elected officials and staff understand the technical and practical aspects of the County’s daily business. Her commitment to her profession and the County and those she serves sets an example that all Community and Planning Office staff strive to replicate.
Please join us in congratulating Jennie on receiving the Outstanding Public Service Award for her work in 2016.
