Employee of the Year Named and Service Awards Issued

The City of Chillicothe awarded Cindy Hanavan as the "Employee of the Year" at its annual Employee Party on December 6, 2013. Hanavan has over 25 years of service with the City Police Department and currently serves as the 911 Dispatch and Officer Manager.

City Administrator Ike Holland stated that her dedication and professionalism is "Second to None". He stated that her performance this year merits this award and without her, the transition of the 911 system from the County to the City would not have happened in a seamless manner.
