  1. They should both get well quick.

    I would like to say that when dealing with inspections dept I felt treated well by Katelyn she is the most pleasant employee in the dept

  2. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Katlyn and her family as well as to the whole building department during these hard and trying times. May she have a full and speedy recovery!

  3. Nicest person to deal with and very helpful, just picked up permits from her last week, praying for a quick and full recovery.

  4. Our prayers for her full recovery. For now, a loss for us, she treats everyone nicely and respectful (even the people that are seeking answers and don’t know their way around …. Let’s not digress here from the main topic).

  5. OMG. No. Not Kip. She’s, like, the nicest person to deal with. Even when conversations get heated she’s stays cool and level-headed. I recently asked her: when is ur off day ? She said, Never. I’m here every day. I said, No, that’s not good. You gotta take a day off. So she did. And now I feel guilty.
    Don’t be sick.
    Get better Quick !!

  6. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Wishing you a speedy recovery. You have always been a pleasure to deal with.
    Looking forward to seeing you back at work real soon!

  7. To Jog a Thon, this is not Kip, it’s Kaitlyn. She sits at the main desk next to Mike. But every word of description you said does apply to Kaitlyn. She always makes everyone feel good and treats everyone with a smile and patience. Not to mention going above the call of duty to help people out. We are all praying for her to have a full and speedy recovery.

  8. Oh. Ok. Ur right. I stand corrected. It’s confusing cuz Kip’s real name is also Kaitlyn. Ur also right that Kaitlyn is a real nice person. Truth is, they both are. Hope she had a speedy recovery.

  9. Kaitlyn….Such a sweet girl. Always a smile on her face & so helpful. My heart goes out to her for a speedy recovery.
