On Friday, December 20, City of Granbury hosted its annual employee awards luncheon at the Lake Granbury Conference Center. During the event, City Manager Chris Coffman recognized several employees for specific honors and milestone years of service.
Employee of the Year
Assistant Director of Finance Elizabeth Bailey was named 2019 Employee of the Year. Hired in 2015 as a financial analyst, Bailey became the assistant director of the department last year. Bailey has played a vital role in the successful planning and execution of many projects, and her software skills and expertise have improved and streamlined processes that impact the City’s everyday performance.
Director of Finance Eva Gregory wrote the nomination for Bailey in which she noted that, “Her efforts not only benefited our department, but they also set an example and inspired co-workers to be team players,” she said, “She inhabits skills we all want, exceptional listener and communicator, critical thinker, highly adaptable, productive, and dependable contributor committed to excellence.”
The fourth annual “Get-R-Done Award,” which is awarded to an employee for their ability to deliver results regardless of circumstances, was presented to Visitor Information Specialist James Dickens.
His supervisor, Convention & Visitors Bureau Director Tammy Dooley, noted that he is “has a sincere dedication to our mission of tourism and works diligently to create a positive and welcoming front office environment,” she said, “James has a cheerful disposition and is willing to do any job asked of him with a team attitude.”

The annual luncheon is also an opportunity to present service awards to those City team members who have worked for the City for a landmark number of years:
Thirty Years of Service
Twenty Years of Service
Fifteen Years of Service
Ten Years of Service
Five Years of Service
During the luncheon, the employees and elected officials present reflected on how fortunate members of the municipal team are to get to work every day in jobs that help make the Granbury community strong and improve the quality of life for its citizens.
The City of Granbury congratulates those team members who, through the length and caliber of their service, exemplify that idea.
