PINELLAS PARK -Last week, Pinellas Park City officials joined Rotarians at the Pinellas Park Rotary Club Meeting to learn who the winner of the 2023 Outstanding City Employee of the Year is...  and the winner is Ron McKenzie, Police Officer for the Pinellas Park Police Department.

Earlier this year, the City recognized the winners of the Firefighter of the Year, Police Officer of the Year, Public Works Employee of the Year and the Professional Services Employee of the Year which are as follows:

Professional Services Employee of the Year - Megan Montesino, Development Review Manager
Public Works Employee of the Year - Jose Lois, Senior Utilities Technician
Firefighter of the Year - Chris Clayton, Firefighter/Paramedic
Police Officer of the Year - Ronald McKenzie

Of these four awardees, Ron McKenzie was the recipient of the Outstanding City Employee of the Year. Officer Ron McKenzie goes above and beyond his required duties as a police mounted officer. He is a team player who can be counted on to complete whatever task he is assigned. He is a creative thinker and demonstrates the agency's core values daily.
