A 34-year employee has received the City of Red Deer’s top employee award.

Brian Stevens, who started with the city as a labourer and is now wastewater collection operator in the Environmental Services Department, was presented with the Bob Stollings Memorial Award on Friday.

The Bob Stollings Memorial Award was created by city council in 1985 to honour Robert E. (Bob) Stollings, a loyal and dedicated employee of the City of Red Deer from 1960 to 1984. It is presented annually to an employee who has displayed outstanding civic performance in alignment with the city’s cornerstone values — respect, integrity, service and excellence.

Stevens has also been very active in the Canadian Union of Provincial Employees (CUPE) Local 417 since 1983, and has served as president since 2010.

Co-workers of Stevens describe him as fair, respectful, knowledgeable, dedicated and always willing to listen to co-workers concerns and work with them to find a solution. These, along with many other strong qualities, made Brian the perfect candidate for this prestigious award.

More than 100 employees were recognized at the 34th annual Employee Recognition Awards Banquet.

Employees were also recognized in the categories of long service, safety and special recognition.
