Jo Ann Mendez, Human Resources Coordinator
Awarded Employee of the Month in recognition and appreciation for outstanding hard work and dependability.
Over the last few months, Human Resources Coordinator Jo Ann Mendez has been working as a one-person department while the Human Resources Director has been out on medical leave. While this would be a significant challenge for any person or department within the City, it seems especially challenging for HR given that HR handles a multitude of personnel situations and transactions with all departments of the City and over 200 employees. Jo Ann has done an excellent job in this respect in that all important pay, benefits, employee services, supervision issues, etc. have continued on with the same level of excellent service that we have all come to expect from our Human Resources Department.
