Brian Brazill Honored as September Employee of the Month

Valdosta Mayor, Scott James Matheson honored Building Service Worker, Brian Brazill as the September 2020 Employee of the Month at the September 10, City Council meeting. Brazill received a framed certificate, a check for $200, and his name appears on a plaque in City Hall.

Brian Brazill began his employment with the City of Valdosta in April of 2012 and currently holds the position of Building Service Worker in the Valdosta Police Department’s Support Services Division. Brian is responsible for cleaning and sanitizing the Police Department and Crime Lab, completing plumbing and electrical repairs, interior and exterior painting, and landscaping for the Police Department firing range.

The nomination for Brian was submitted by Lieutenant Holly Vickers in regard to Brian's performance in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Lieutenant Vickers submitted the following: "During the COVID-19 partial shutdown, Mr. Brazill met with several suppliers for the Police Department, Crime Lab, and City Hall. He stood in line countless hours at Sam's to make purchases for the City to ensure we had proper sanitary items and toilet paper in our buildings. He showed great initiative by going the extra mile to meet with local distributors to ensure they would set aside supplies for our Department, so we would not run out of the important essential items needed during that time. Without Mr. Brazill's hard work and determination, I feel strongly that we would have quickly run out of the supplies and would have not been able to properly replenish them in a timely
manner."

The City of Valdosta applauds Mr. Brazill for his dedication, exemplary work ethic, and for being named the September 2020 Employee of the Month.
