Employee of the Year
The City of Dahlonega is pleased to announce the selection of Ricky Joe Iwanski as its Employee of the Year. If you have ever driven Morrison Moore Parkway, any city street, or visited City Hall, you have seen and benefited from Ricky’s work. Ricky’s dedication and commitment to the City is demonstrated by nearly 45 years of faithful service since his original hire as a 16 year-old on June 21,1974.
During that time, he has not only performed countless duties in nearly all field departments, but has served as a mentor to dozens of other coworkers under several City Managers. His ability to satisfy his own professional obligations, while simultaneously forwarding the careers of less experienced workers, is of great value to the City and its residents.
