WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The League of Women Voters of Williamstown is seeking nominations for its annual Employee of the Year Award.

All employees of the town of Williamstown are eligible. For example, this includes snowplow drivers, librarians, cemetery workers, police officers, town department heads, custodians, teachers, transfer station workers, fire fighters, the town manager – anyone on the town payroll.

Nomination forms are available at the Milne Library and at Town Hall, or nominations can be sent to the League of Women Voters of Williamstown, P.O. Box 392, Williamstown, by May 7. Nominations should include a description of the exceptional service provided and the name and telephone number or email address of the person submitting the nomination.

The name of winner will be announced on May 21 at the annual town meeting.

Past winners are Tim Kaiser, Rose Hamman, Betsy Reali, Mary Kennedy, Pat MacLeod, Chris Lemoine, Mindy Hackner, Paul Langlois, Brian O'Grady; Janet Saddler, Patti Patterson and, last year, the entire Department of Town Inspections.
