City names Sumner as Employee of the Month


The Employee of the Month title for January went to city employee Mike Sumner, building inspector for the Environmental Management Department, who was recognized at Monday’s regular City Council meeting.

“Mike makes up our building inspection department,” said Bert Crowe, director of the Environmental Management Department, and then added, “He is the building inspection department. He’s the one that comes in contact with a lot of our business people and new businesses, new people coming into town. He’s always done a superior job at it, always worked through any problems that may be out there in the field in a timely manner and takes care of things. You couldn’t ask for anybody any better. I just appreciate having him on board and appreciate him being apart of our team.”

Prior to Sumner being recognized, Mayor Jamie Cater commented, “Larry (Riner) and his team got this started a while back. We’re very proud of all of our employees. We’re just figureheads up here. It’s Larry and all of y’all that keep this thing running, and you do a great job.”
