The following description by City employees Shandreah Womack and Clay Malone nominated the employees for the STARS award:
“An elderly lady called 9-1-1 to report her water was not working. It turns out her water bill was due, and she could not pay it and water was turned off. MFRD Captain David Bricker and MPD Officer Jaydin Davis both gave money to purchase water, food, and snacks for her. She was very grateful. These gentlemen went above and beyond their duties to help this elderly lady.”
