Release Date
USDA Rural Development State Director Maxine Moul today presented a plaque to Nancy Kopejtka, Atkinson City Clerk, for her excellence in performance. “It is with great pleasure to meet the clerk who has helped her city complete a $3,550,000 project for a new wastewater treatment facility. Thank you for your dedicated service,” said Moul. The Central Nebraska USDA staff nominated Nancy for the award because she “is always very responsive to requests for information and documentation, at times even anticipating what was going to be needed before the staff asked for it. Her friendly, positive attitude along with her motivation enabled the recently completed wastewater project to progress very efficiently.” To find the nearest Rural Development contact for you in Nebraska visit http://www.rurdev.usda.gov/NE-Contact.html.
