August 2011 Employee of the Month

Anita Gustuson

Finance Department

Dependable, resourceful and always careful with the taxpayers’ dollars are some of the strong points describing August Employee of the Month, Anita Gustuson.  Anita joined the City in June 2000, as a Clerical Assistant II in the Finance Department, supporting the Purchasing Division.  Her prior experience as a Buyer for National Diversified Sales in Lindsay, plus being a 1993 Leadership Lindsay graduate, made her an excellent choice for the position.  Anita wears many hats and handles numerous critical tasks for the department including ensuring the bidding process on our capital projects runs smoothly and is well-organized.  She processes all Community Civic Event applications, keeps our DUNS Central Contractor Registration updated, works on research projects for the Finance Director, and generally manages all functions that keep the Finance Department staff working efficiently.  Additionally, Anita is currently learning the Business License Code and will soon be able to process new and renewal Business License applications.  She maintains a close working relationship with the City’s vendors and contractors, and always puts a positive attitude at the forefront.  Anita’s initiative is well recognized at the City.  She thrives well on innovation and enjoys using new technology to streamline work processes - a recent example being her work with the Engineering Department to facilitate electronic transmission of bid documents to plan rooms.

Anita earned her AA Degree from Porterville College in 2002, and just recently completed all requirements to earn her Paralegal certification.  She has two grown daughters:   Kathleen is married to Bradley and teaches in Lindsay; her youngest, Renee, is finishing college in Fresno.  She is a brand new grandma, thanks to Kathleen and Bradley giving birth to “Everett Dylan” on July 7th.   In addition to enjoying time spent with family, Anita’s hobbies include sewing and quilting, hiking in the mountains, and reading a good novel with her trusty dog, Merlin, by her side.
