Ellis Named October Employee of the Month
Posted on 11/02/2018
Congratulations to Mike Ellis, City of Columbia Employee of the Month for October. Mike has been a dedicated City employee for the last four and a half years. Serving all departments and City employees through his work with the MIS Department, Mike’s focus on quality and productivity are apparent to everyone who has worked with him.  In his position as Network Administrator, he responds to issues and concerns immediately, always eager to step in with solutions, and exceeds expectations aiding in the productivity of all City offices. Whether at the office or evenings/weekends, once Mike is made aware of an issue, you can count on him to go the extra mile to resolve it.  His demeanor is positive without exception, one can count on Mike to interact with fellow employees in a manner that is key to maintaining a positive workplace. Recently, Rick Harrison and his team had a problem with a DVD burner/recorder. The team thought the unit would need to be replaced. Eager to dig in, as is typical for Mike, he was able to find a software solution that ultimately saved the City hundreds of dollars for a replacement unit. 
The City of Columbia is grateful for the dedication and commitment of employees like Mike Ellis. Thank you for serving as an Ambassador to the community and as one of the very best examples of a Columbia municipal employee, conducting his work professionally and with the utmost commitment to serving the citizens of Columbia.
