KPD Employee of the Month March 2006

Posted: 05/02/2006
 Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam and Police Chief Sterling Owen named Ms. Janice Marston the Civilian Employee of the Month for March. Ms. Marston works in the Management Services Division and has been with the police department since October 2004. Ms. Marston started her career with the City of Knoxville in 1986.

Chief Owen said Ms. Marston is being honored for exemplary work in preparing the police department's 2006 - 2007 budget. Ms. Marston was responsible for compiling the information forwarded to her by the divisions within the police department and then preparing the necessary paperwork for submittal. This task also included learning a new computerized financial program that had never been utilized for budget reporting.

Chief Owen said, "Janice would work over and came in on her days off to ensure the budget was balanced and ready for the submittal process. She did not hesitate to seek assistance when faced with a problem and maintained a good working relationship with the Finance Department."
During the budget process, Janice continued to maintain her other duties and responsibilities and took the time to mentor those under her supervision on the budget process.

Chief Owen said, "Janice ensured the budget was submitted by the deadline date and that it was accepted with no errors. She also maintained her professionalism during this stressful time."
Mayor Haslam said, "Preparing the budget is always a difficult time for the many departments within city government. We commend Ms. Marston on her dedication and commitment to her duties and to the city."

Ms. Marston will receive a signed certificate from the Mayor and Chief along with a free dinner from Ruby Tuesday Restaurant.
