employee recognition

MavisRecognition062524Sewer Clerk and General Assistance Administrator Mavis Gensel was recognized for 35 years of service to the Town Farmington!  Our employees are our greatest expenditure, and they are by far the Town’s biggest asset.  Their dedication to their jobs makes this Town such a positive place to live, work, study and play.  Their successes are what build on the excellent reputation that we enjoy among municipalities throughout the State.  Mavis embodies all of that.

Mavis handles our General Assistance customers with empathy and care, always treating people with compassion and respect.  She manages the sewer billing and helps establish that budget.  She is able to diffuse almost any situation with the public, and our residents seek her out when they come to the office.  They know her, and she knows them, always asking after family and loved ones while she helps with an auto registration or tax bill.  And she provides the years of knowledge and insight that the rest of the Town Office employees need being so new to the community.

Mavis, thank you for the last thirty-five years.  You are a true gem, and we are so lucky to have you here.  Congratulations on this milestone!


Beginning Monday, June 17th, KRT Appraisal, LLC will be verifying existing data on file with the Assessor's Office.  As such, one of the KRT Appraisal representatives will be asking for a walk-through of your property and to be allowed to measure all structures on the property over the next few months.
