Congratulations to Mike Beane, the July 2016 Employee of the Month!

Mike was promoted to Public Building Maintenance Coordinator in 2008. Mike oversees the Mitchell Courthouse building and was instrumental after this spring’s fire in the building.
According to Terrel Chesson, Mike’s supervisor, “Mike is one of my best employees. He takes the lead performing many tasks and is self-motivated. He embraces the culture that I’m working to create which is being proactive instead of reactive.” Terrel continued, “He is also excellent with follow up and customer service. His efforts are consistent.”
Mr. Beane is motivated each day to do a good job. He said that he spends more time in the courthouse then he does at home. He also enjoys the people he interacts with stating that “everyone is wonderful.”
