The Mayor and City Council has expressed gratitude to its employees for commitment to the work of the city while enduring many difficulties with patience and understanding.
The M&CC in a release yesterday also said that without the hard work and commitment, in harsh conditions, the council could not have achieved drainage, environmental and other works.
“Looking back, employees endured with patience and understanding many difficulties. The tight economic situation and precarious financial reality in which council must serve the citizens affected its ability to meet its financial and other obligations to its staff,” the M&CC said.
However, the workers still pressed on “cleaning our canals, repairing bridges, enforcing the city by-laws and providing maternal and child welfare and day care services to citizens,” the M&CC acknowledged.
The council also noted that many workers have been in its employ for more than two decades and have “worked with great dedication with little remuneration in their particular stations.”
Meanwhile, the council undertook to continue making “every effort to create the appropriate environment” that would enhance the personal development and work performance of their workers, who are “among our precious assets,” the release added.
