Kootenai County Employee of the Year-Kelly Peterson

Kelly Peterson

Kootenai County is excited to recognize Kelly Peterson as our 2020 Employee of the Year!

Kelly has worked for Kootenai County since 2013. His exemplary customer service at the Post Falls DMV has been acknowledged by customers, one of which wrote, "….You have a guy working for you who seems to be able to take what might otherwise be the world's most dull job and turn it into one where he obviously enjoys what he does, can keep a sense of humor, & can share that with the public. I found his technical understanding & willingness to guide me through the process to be absolutely spot on. His service was quick, competent, & extremely helpful."

Kelly was recognized by his co-workers as the January 2020 Employee of the Month because of his positive attitude and constant willingness to go above and beyond, including putting license plates on vehicles for customers who might have difficulty doing that themselves. When Kelly sees something that needs to be done, he doesn't hesitate to step in & lend a hand, such as supporting the Facilities team by shoveling walkways in the winter to help keep staff & customers safe. On those snowy winter days, he can also be found clearing ice and snow from his co-worker's vehicles at the end of the work day.

The county employee recognition program is in place to recognize those employees who provide exemplary customer service, accountability, teamwork, communications, and professionalism. We want to take this opportunity to thank Kelly (and our other employees of the month) for going above and beyond in their service to others.

Congratulations, Kelly!
