Craig A. Moe would like to take this opportunity to recognize one of
the City of Laurel’s outstanding volunteers who is also an employee.
Pat Walsh recently received one of five Employee of the Year
awards for his outstanding dedication to the citizens of Laurel in his
position as a Code Enforcement Officer at a recent Employee Awards
Luncheon. He has been an employee of the City of Laurel since November
Pat is also one of the Charter Members of the Laurel Citizens’
Police Academy Alumni Association which was started on January 29,
2002. He is also a trained member of the Laurel Police Auxiliary which
is a group of volunteers who assist the Laurel Police Department in
patrol and parking activities.
Pat also divides his time with the City of Laurel’s Community
Emergency Response Team (CERT) when he completed their training program
in April 2004. This active group of volunteers will assist the City of
Laurel staff and other local emergency agencies in the event of a
disaster in the area.
So far in 2009, in addition to his regular working hours, Pat has
donated 55 hours of his time to the City of Laurel through one of these
volunteer groups. He is an outstanding individual who strives in his
professional and personal life to make his environment a better place.
The City of Laurel is lucky to have such a person working and
volunteering for us.
