Bill Smith, district supervisor
Code Services, Community Planning and Economic Development
Building inspectors Marlene Bach and Liz Riel nominated Bill for his positive and supportive leadership:
“Bill recognizes everyone’s skills and abilities and encourages us to be the best that we can be. He supports our decisions in the field and presents our concerns to administration. He makes no assumptions and obtains the information needed to support our field work. He is always positive and has our backs.
“In an environment that can produce many negative comments from the public because we are code enforcers, he always stands behind us first and then addresses the issues. We are more productive because Bill is supporting us.
“Bill encourages all employees in his district to take training to enable them to advance in their career. He encourages them to apply for job positions and coaches them toward meeting their goals.
“He creates a positive climate by dispelling negative comments, stating factual feedback and making non-judgmental comparisons.
“Bill has worked tirelessly to regain trust and create positive community relations with residents.”
