Celebrate #PeopleofCBJ during Public Service Recognition Week

May 5, 2019 – News

Every year since 1985, the first full week of May is set aside to honor the innovative and dedicated people who work as federal, state and local government employees. As Alaska’s Capital City, many people in the community have dedicated their lives to public service. At CBJ, employees work every day to make a difference in the lives of local residents.

During the April 22 Regular Assembly Meeting, the Assembly made a proclamation to designate May 5 through May 11, 2019 as Public Service Recognition Week. The week is also the 50th Anniversary of Municipal Clerks Week. The proclamation highlights the municipal clerks as “a time-honored and vital part of local government that exists throughout the world.”

This year, CBJ is widening the scope of Public Service Recognition Week. In addition to CBJ employees, we’re going to highlight individuals that serve the public and local government through volunteering – individuals that sit on a CBJ board or commission, volunteer at a CBJ facility – and others that serve on the Assembly. These individuals are part of the backbone of local government and CBJ appreciates their time, dedication, and engagement.

In celebration, from Monday to Friday this week, we’ll be profiling #PeopleofCBJ on social media – FacebookTwitter, and Instagram – to highlight a few of the individuals that make local government run. CBJ employees, volunteers, Assembly members, and CBJ boards and commissions members will also be featured on KTOO’s Juneau Afternoon this week.
