From Harford County government:
Harford County Executive David R. Craig has announced that Cheryl Landreth of the Office of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has been named “Employee of the Month” for June 2013. Mrs. Landreth was chosen for her work in support of the Treasury Department with the Property Tax Billing and Collection System.
Mrs. Landreth was nominated by Rachel Holmes, Anne Gessner, and Kathy Stryjewski of the Treasury Department. In their nomination, the three Treasury employees stated, “The upgrade to the Property Tax Billing and Collection System would not have happened without Cheryl Landreth’s dedication and countless hours working on the implementation of the system. Cheryl first began working with outside contractors in 2010 to upgrade the system from mainframe based to web based without having any familiarity with the tax system. Many months later, Cheryl has mastered the intricacies of the tax billing and receivable system.”
The Treasury employees added, “To say the system has been and continues to be a challenge may be an understatement; however Cheryl has been up to the task and beyond. She has worked late nights in the office, and at home in the evening and on weekends and holidays.”
Upon receiving the award, Mrs. Landreth said, “I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Treasury staff through the reengineering of the tax system. They have been patient and understanding throughout this challenging process. We have worked side-by-side to remove errors and implement changes to reduce processing time for many system features.”
Commenting on the selection of Cheryl Landreth as “Employee of the Month” for June, Director of Administration Mary Chance said, “Cheryl’s work ethic exemplifies the work of the entire ICT staff. Without Cheryl’s can-do attitude and dedication to this essential component of the Treasury system, the completion of this project would have been far more difficult to achieve.”
