The Employee of the Year Award was established in 1987 to grant recognition to a City employee for accomplishments of outstanding worth in advancing and improving public service in the City of Falls Church general government. Accomplishments that are eligible for consideration will vary widely in form and substance due to the many different jobs city employees perform. They will be evaluated against criteria which examine gains achieved, overall impact of the accomplishment, and the environment in which the achievement took place.
The city Employees Review Board will receive the nominations and the supporting documentation and select the award recipient based on the facts presented. The recipient receives a cash award. Presentation of the award will be made by the Mayor and City Council at a council meeting in April.
