FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- Fairfield is looking for its employee and citizen of the year.
The Fairfield Board of Selectmen are conducting the 10th annual Fairfield citizen and town employee of the year awards, according to a news release. First Selectman Mike Tetreau made the announcement recently, adding that any member of the public, including town employees, are encouraged to submit nominations to the First Selectman’s Office by noon on Nov. 15, according to the release.
Nomination criteria and forms for each award are available in the First Selectman’s Office, the Main Library and on the Town’s website.
"An independent committee will review all submitted nomination forms and then recommend three finalists for each award to the Board of Selectmen which will select the two final winners," according to the release. The Board of Selectmen are set to present the awards to two individuals, a Fairfield resident and town employee, later this fall, according to the release.
“This is a nice way for the Selectmen to recognize the many unsung heroes who devote themselves to our Town through hard work and a genuine commitment to helping others," Tetreau said in the release. "I encourage the Fairfield community to view a list of past winners on our town’s website and to nominate people you believe are deserving of this special award.”
