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 Jimmy Green, the sanitation foreman.
Green is a longtime city employee. Those who know him know that he is going to give you great service and plenty of laughs. He has been noted as always being one of the last to leave the Transfer Station, resulting in many late nights.
Recently, the Transfer Station had a power outage on one of the hottest days of the year. Instead of closing for business, Green led the charge to continue operations manually and work throughout the facility without air conditioning. The customers remained unaware of the difficulties and additional work that was being done.
“Jimmy is known for his commitment to customer service, and he is a staple of the operation,” said Jeremy Hutt, director of public works. “If anyone has used the services provided at the Transfer Station, they have likely been assisted by Jimmy. He’s just a great guy.”
For his outstanding work and exceptional service, Green received a City shirt and $50 gift card.
The All-Star 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.
