First Selectman Mike Tetreau announced today that the Fairfield Board of Selectmen is conducting its 13th annual Fairfielder and Town Employee of the Year Awards.
Any member of the public, including town and school employees, is encouraged to submit nominations by 12 pm on Monday, November 7, 2016. Nomination criteria, lists of previous winners and nomination forms can be found at www.fairfieldct.org/bosawards or by contacting the First Selectman’s Office at 203-256-3030. Please note that nominations can be submitted online.
The Board of Selectmen will present awards at one of its meetings in December to two outstanding individuals—one Fairfield resident and one Town employee. The winners’ names will be added to a plaque which lists the names of all previous winners and the year they received their award. The plaque hangs in the entryway of Independence Hall on the Burr Homestead.
First Selectman Tetreau said, “There’s no better way to start the holiday season than to honor members of our community who go above and beyond to make a positive difference for Fairfield. These awards are a popular and rewarding town tradition that recognize so many wonderful and devoted residents and employees. I encourage individuals to submit nominations for someone you believe is a deserving award recipient.”
