2019 Award Winners

2019 City Manager Excellence Awards 

The employees of the City of Flagstaff strive to provide excellent customer service in every program and service we provide to each other and to our community.

While customer service is expected of each of us, there are some employees that go beyond our expectation and achieve the extraordinary in service delivery and customer satisfaction.
