  1. this was so nice to watch! it makes the employee feel like a million bucks and everyone else is gonna work harder to win!! a kiddush Hashem too!!

  2. Well deserved honor keep up the good work. because one township employee gets the award doesn’t mean that we don’t appreciate all employees work. For the employees that deserve the award you’ll be getting it maybe next month maybe the month after that. If you deserve it you’ll get it. Again, thank you to ALL township employees for all you do for us it is greatly appreciated!

  3. Juan-derful! great guy, always a pleasure to encounter him. He adds warmth and personality to the township. Recognition well deserved.

  4. As someone who works inside the municipal building, I could not be happier for Juan! He is an outstanding worker. Every time I see him he has a smile on his face and is quick to say hello. When ever you ask something of him, he does right away!! After working in this building for a little over 10 years, Juan is by far the BEST custodian I have ever seen.
