At Your Service
Employee Recognition


The Solid Waste Division is honored to present Joanne Kimura as our Employee of the Quarter, Winter 2011. Joanne is a Programmer Analyst III for the Solid Waste Management Division. As one of the division's computer gurus, we would have to say that Joanne is actually a Jack of All Trades. She is constantly working on computer programs, routing information, GPS, spreadsheets and other special projects for the division. Joanne goes above and beyond her actual duties to help wherever she is needed. If you ever need anything, all you have to do is ask and let her know what you are expecting as an end result. This is where you will find someone who thinks outside the box and is an excellent problem solver.

Joanne has implemented new computer systems into the division, actually training herself. This employee has been with the City of Fresno for over 20 years and has established working relationships with other departments and divisions, so she has the knowledge to go where she needs to, to get information. This is also where her excellent customer service and public relations experience comes in, working across department and division lines to tackle issues.

Her dedication, professionalism and customer service, inside and outside the department/division contribute to the overall success of the division. We are proud to present her as our employee of the quarter. Congratulations Joanne!

Solid Waste
Community Food Bank Fund Raiser

This year, Solid Waste employees came together to benefit the Community Food Bank. We gave $380 dollars and over 35 lbs. of food. Since every dollar donated equals eight actual dollars, that's over $3,000 dollars worth of food for the needy in our community! Thank you to all those who contributed.



It is our pleasure and honor to present Joe Dinubilo as the Solid Waste Fall 2010 employee of the Quarter. Joe is indeed an employee to end our year off right.
