The City of Cleburne's STARS program recognizes staff members who go above and beyond to help serve the community. The latest recipient of the All-Star Award is Jason Thomas, a member of the sewer maintenance crew.
Thomas has served the City for more than five years. He has always done a great job, and it became particularly noticeable by the way he reacted when his division started experiencing a staffing shortage. Thomas sprang into action and filled in wherever needed to ensure that operations kept running smoothly.
“Jason worked all but two days in January, which includes weekends. He was also the primary 24-hour on-call jetter truck driver for after-hours sewer calls,” said James Randell, water utilities supervisor. “I never heard Jason complain or be down because of working too much.”
Randell added that Thomas also assisted the crew chiefs as much as possible to take the load off of their plate.
For his outstanding work and exceptional service, Thomas received a City shirt and $50 gift card for winning the All-Star Award.
The award is usually given out monthly. Anyone can submit a nomination by contacting the employee’s department. Each All-Star winner for the fiscal year is then put into the running to become the City’s Superstar, which is the highest recognition in the STARS program.
