MEMO TO:          Randy Martin, Interim Town Manager

FROM:                 Rhonda C. Ferebee, Town Clerk

SUBJECT:           Amendment to Civilian / Employee Commendation Program

The Emerald Isle Board of Commissioners first adopted the attached Civilian / Employee Commendation Program in July, 2017.   The establishment of this formal program was to provide a framework for recognizing extraordinary acts, outstanding contributions, and excellent service in Emerald Isle. 

The amendment proposed would incorporate the addition of award commendation descriptions for our new EMS Department, as well as include the EMS Chief as part of the Commendation Review Committee for all future recommendations for awards listed in this policy.

It is recommended that the Board approve this amendment to the Civilian / Employee Commendation Program.  I’ll be glad to answer any questions you may have about this request.
