2014 EOY RecipientThe Employee Recognition Committee has selected Crystal Nason as the 2014 Employee of the Year for Augusta, Georgia.  Ms. Nason is a Property Appraiser II for the Tax Assessor department where she has been employed for 3 years.  She was nominated by Alveeno Ross. 

Crystal Nason, after only 14 months as the “Mobile home Appraiser,” has served exceptionally well in carrying out new procedures to correct a costly county operation dysfunction. Her field reviews and ownership contacts are a major component of the “Mobile Home Project” of the Tax Assessor’s Office.  

Ms. Nason’s positive attitude with property owners, fellow employees, personnel of the Tax Commissioner’s office, the Marshall’s office, and the courts, as well as her level of understanding and execution of supervisory directives defined the project successful. Professional training in a DOR recent course - Manufacturing Housing”- she scored a 96 and the instructor contacted our office to give high praises of her interaction in the class. Ms. Nason’s file management, coordination of records, collaboration with others, weekly reports, and follow-up with upper management surpassed our expectations.
This project was estimated to take over 2 years. However, it was completed in half the time and with superior quality due to Ms. Nason’s efforts. As a result of Ms. Nason’s efforts delinquent tax mobile home accounts are down 54% from the prior year to date. Back taxes collected to date are over $256,500. This project’s success has eliminated the collection cost which would impact the Tax Assessors office, Marshall’s office, Magistrate Court, and the Tax Commissioner at an estimated $500,000 annually.
The Employee Recognition Committee felt that based on this nomination and Crystal’s outstanding service, we would appreciate you joining us in recognizing her as the 2014 Employee of the Year.
