City of Mill Creek Recognizes Three Staff Members for Service Milestones

At the June 6 Council Meeting, the City of Mill Creek recognized three staff for service milestones: Officer Kyle Hughes, Sarah Steepy and Gina Pfister.

“Each of these employees has uniquely demonstrated service inside and outside the organization, teamwork that goes beyond assigned duties, accountability for actions and decisions, and respect – our STAR values,” said City Manager Rebecca Polizzotto. “We recognize these service milestones because it is people like these that make the City of Mill Creek warm and welcoming – both for those who work at City Hall, as well as for those who have the good fortune to interact with these employees. We thank them for their service and look forward to many more years to come.”

Officer Kyle Hughes joined the Mill Creek Police Department in May 2007 and has proven himself to be a resourceful, intelligent and an otherwise invaluable member of the agency. Even as a child, Hughes was never far from policing. When in elementary school, while other kids were asking for skate boards and parachute pants, he asked his parents to buy him a police scanner. That Christmas, he got his wish and the love affair with law enforcement was born. Since his time as a small lad with a scanner, Hughes grew to be an active and socially responsible member of his community. He was a distinguished member of the Kirkland Police Explorer program and also served as an advisor for nearly 10 years, including being a member of King County Search and Rescue. During his 10 years in Mill Creek, he has served as a detective, operated as an active member of the Snohomish County Narcotics Drug Task Force, and currently serves on the North Sound Metro SWAT Team as their Drone Pilot and Communications and Technologies expert. He is a Mill Creek resident.

Sarah Steepy, of Lake Stevens, has worked at the City for five years. She joined the City in May of 2012 as a part-time passport technician. Her talents, work ethic and commitment to the City’s STAR values (service, teamwork, accountability and respect) were rewarded when she was promoted to full time status and was asked to take on additional responsibilities for the several departments. In May 2016, when the Community and Economic Development and Public Works departments moved to the City Hall North building, she was asked to move with them and now provides administrative support. In her new role, Steepy has taken advantage of training opportunities and is a Certified Permit Technician. With this knowledge and certification, she is now the primary City contact for processing building permits.

Gina Pfister, of Snohomish, achieved her five-year milestone at the City. Her first role at the City was working in the Police Department as a part-time passport technician. She took on full-time work in November 2014. During her time there, Pfister processed building permits, business licenses, answered the phones, greeted and helped walk-in customers, did recruiting for Human Resources and led the charge for the Employee Recognition Committee. Her dedication to the City’s STAR values made her a natural candidate to transition into the role of executive assistant to the City Manager, where she also provides support to the City Council.
