City Clerk Erin Fasbender has been named the City of Rosemount’s 2018 Employee of the Year for her service to the organization and the community it serves.
In the nomination of Fasbender for the award, she was described as “always willing to help her coworkers, no matter how busy she is herself. She displays professionalism and integrity in everything she does here.” The nomination was written by Public Works Coordinator Christine Watson, who won the same award in 2016.
Fasbender took over the responsibilities of City Clerk for Rosemount in January, at the start of the year’s busy election season. She recruited and trained election judges, supervised preparations to handle an increased volume of early and absentee voting, and oversaw successful primary and general elections.
As City Clerk, Fasbender is responsible for keeping the official records of City Council actions and other public records. She also administers the issuance of municipal licenses, and works closely with the Council and all City departments.
The City’s management team, led by City Administrator Logan Martin (pictured), selected Fasbender for the top honor.
“Erin is a very deserving recipient of this honor,” Administrator Martin said. “She took on the challenges of being a new City Clerk during an election year without hesitation, and she managed that process like a seasoned pro. We are very grateful to have her on our team, and we are proud to call her our Employee of the Year.”
Fasbender has worked for the City of Rosemount since July 2016, initially in the Public Works/Engineering Department. She is a graduate of Winona State University, where she studied business administration and human resources. Her family includes her husband and two daughters, “who keep me busy when I’m not in the office.”
She is the 16th recipient of the annual award, created by the City to honor employees who provide excellent customer service, achieve savings and efficiency in government, and serve as models of safe work habits. Names of award winners are engraved on a plaque displayed in the upper lobby of Rosemount City Hall.
