City of Paducah Celebrates Public Service Recognition Week, May 7-13, 2017


From May 7 through 13, the City of Paducah is celebrating Public Service Recognition Week.  Celebrated the first full week in May since 1985, Public Service Recognition Week is a time to honor the men and women who serve our nation as federal, state, county, and local government employees.

City Manager Jeff Pederson says, “At the heart of Public Service Recognition Week is the opportunity to invigorate government employees by offering them the thanks that they deserve but seldom receive.  Please join me in celebrating the City of Paducah’s 330 employees.”

During Public Service Recognition Week, look for graphics that will be posted each day on this page and on the City's Facebook page.  Each graphic will feature a quote and photo of a City of Paducah employee explaining why they are proud to serve the community.

Public Information Officer Pam Spencer says, “Public Service Recognition Week provides a platform for government employees to educate others about the work they do and why they do it.  Choosing a career in government is a calling for many public servants, and this week allows employees the opportunity to explain how government services are essential in sustaining the quality of life in a community.”
