LATE RESOLUTION

  1. ARGOTSINGER – RESOLUTION RECOGNIZING BUDGET DIRECTOR ALICE KUNTZSCH FOR EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE TO FULTON COUNTY

No. 472 (Resolution Recognizing Budget Director Alice Kuntzsch for Exceptional Service to Fulton County): Chairman Callery stated that Budget Director Alice Kuntzsch has done a tremendous job and has been with Fulton County for 18 years. He also stated that Ms. Kuntzsch has been a dedicated employee and has worked well with all Department Heads. Chairman Callery wished Ms. Kuntzsch well on her retirement and thanked her for her service.

Mr. Stead invited Ms. Kuntzsch to the podium. He stated that the Board Office has staff prepared honorary Resolution for her which will memorialize her service to the County into perpetuity. Mr. Stead read Resolution No. 472.

Ms. Kuntzsch stepped forward to say a few words:

First, I want to say how grateful I am for the opportunity to serve as County Budget Director and Auditor for 18 years. From Board of Supervisors, to the Department Heads and their staff, it has been my pleasure to work with each of you and I sincerely appreciate the support during my tenure.

I have said this before; the sound fiscal foundation of the County has not been due to happenstance. I can remember times when the tough decisions had to be made and even though they were not popular, you remained resolute!

For all the hard work in the success we have accomplished, I say thank you! I have genuinely enjoyed my position and will miss the workplace a great deal. The girls in the Board Office work like a well-oiled machine…but it is not all work and no play... believe me the conversations we have shared has kept me in stitches!

And a special note of gratitude to Jon Stead for taking me “under his wing” in my first years. He has been my sounding board and been a trusted colleague.

To my Deputy Alicia Cowan, I applaud her for her dedication and work ethic. She has check lists for everything…annual, monthly, daily checklists and post-it note on all her piles of work. I have found that the older I get; how easy it is for me to get distracted…But Alicia was right there with her checklist to keep this “caboose” on track…

Though I am leaving, I am taking your friendship with me and I wish a bright future for Fulton County. Cheers for all the years!

Ms. Kuntzsch received a raucous standing ovation from the Board members and everyone in attendance.

Mr. Stead then interjected that this is actually Alice’s second retirement. Mr. Stead stated that she served 24 years in the U.S. Air Force Reserve. He noted that she achieved the rank of “Chief Master Sergeant”. He expressed that it takes a strong work ethic to accomplish such a title. Mr. Stead thanked Ms. Kuntzsch for her military service and acknowledged her appointment of Chief Master Sergeant, which is the highest NCO rank attainable. He stated, “that’s a big accomplishment” in summing up both careers.

 

NEW BUSINESS

Chairman Callery stated that there will be one final meeting this month. Mr. Stead stated that the meeting will be held on Tuesday, 28 December at 1:00 p.m. Mr. Stead noted that it should be a brief, but important, meeting and that it will be the last meeting of the year.
