At its 6 p.m. meeting tonight, the Middle Township Committee will honor Josh Niemann as the April 2017 Employee of the Month. Niemann started his career in the finance office in 2012 and currently serves as the Township’s Qualified Purchasing Agent.

“Josh’s attention to details and his ambitious pursuit in gaining more education and expertise in his profession is an invaluable asset to the Township,” said Mayor Michael Clark. “With Josh’s progressive and creating thinking, I anticipate he will continue to elevate the operations of the Finance Office and bring more efficiency to Township government. We are very lucky to have him.”

Niemann lives in Cape May along with his three cats and enjoys playing guitar and weight lifting. He very much enjoys working for the Township and is grateful for having a position that plays such a central role in Township government.

The Middle Township Employee of the Month program was initiated by the Township Committee to honor employees who exemplify the Township’s commitment to better delivery of services and going the extra mile for residents. The program culminates with the Darius Graham Employee of the Year honor that is named after one of the Township’s most beloved employees in its history.

Nominations for the Employee of the Month Program are available inside Middle Township hall at three locations: Human Resources and Training Department, Administration Department, and on the bulletin board. Residents from the Township who have had a very positive interaction with any Middle Township employee may pick up the one-page nomination form and fill it out in the employee’s behalf. Each month a Township employee will be selected; the winning nominee will receive a certificate at a future Township Committee meeting along with a photograph posted on the bulletin board.
