Two Pinellas County Community Development employees were presented with the 2012 President's Award from the Upper Pinellas Association for Retarded Citizens for their work on the renovation of Harborside Studios in Safety Harbor and the Waterfall Apartment Complex in Clearwater.
The awards were presented in September to Sheri Harris, compliance manager and Rose Ott, grant compliance specialist.
The President's Award acknowledges an individual or an institution whose activities during the year have had a significant benefit to UPARC.
During the presentation, UPARC president Ryan Griffin said, "Sheri was not only patient and professional, she was resourceful and flexible, always willing to brainstorm with us to resolve issues within the confines of their regulatory guidelines but always with the best interests of UPARC at the forefront.,"
Of Ott, Griffin said, "Rose has demonstrated exemplary leadership in her negotiations with our contractors to facilitate the successful closure of this project."
Griffin also thanked his staff for their efforts to go beyond what is expected to help UPARC and the community.
Community Development director Anthony Jones echoed UPARC's sentiments and said, "We have very dedicated employees in Community Development and these employees represent the great work that is being accomplished not just in our department but throughout county government on a regular basis."
