January 2016 Employee of the Month

Augie Gonzales

Animal Control

Porterville Police Department

Congratulations to Augie Gonzalez, the City of Porterville’s Employee of the Month for January 2016.

Augie Gonzalez is the City of Porterville’s Animal Control Supervisor and contributes countless hours to this assignment.  Through his leadership, the challenges that our Animal Control Facility presents are met head on and remains at a high operating level, ensuring the best possible outcomes for Porterville’s pet population.  His diligence and his community contacts allow for the shelter to receive donations that enhance the care and comfort of the animals at the facility.  Although Augie could easily receive recognition as the City of Porterville’s Employee of the month for his efforts as the Animal Control Supervisor, Augie was selected based on all of his volunteer work that he performs on a regular basis.

Augie Gonzalez is very active in our community and has been so for many years.  Outside of his duties as the Animal Control Supervisor, Augie also participates in the Porterville Police Explorer Youth Program.  He regularly goes on extended trips with the program where he serves in an advisory capacity and is also in charge of all meal preparations.  The activities involved in meal preparations include menu planning, food preparation, and the actual serving of meals for upwards of several hundred people.  Augie organizes his own volunteers to assist with these duties as well.  Despite the long hours worked during these events, which involves being the first one up in the morning and the last one to finish at night, Augie is always in a pleasant mood and remains eager to provide assistance in any way needed.

Recently, the City of Porterville and Porterville Chamber of Commerce held their Santa in the Park event.  Augie was an instrumental part in helping to organize and operate the event.  Through his hard work and diligent efforts he was able to obtain donations from numerous supporters throughout the community which resulted in providing gifts to scores of children.  This event was well organized and well attended in no small part due to Augie’s dedication and commitment to the community.

As if Augie did not have enough to do, Augie also recently prepared a nice dinner for all the law enforcement personnel assigned to this year’s Christmas parade, and was instrumental in helping to prepare the turkey for the City of Porterville’s Christmas luncheon.

The above activities are just a representation of Augie’s involvement in the community.  We don’t have enough time to list them all.
