I want to recognize Officer Lilly for her exemplary work and dedication to our community. She worked her regular 8 hour shift on Wednesday, July 28th and then advised me that she would stay in Spring Valley to monitor any storms that would be headed this way, as she was concerned for the safety of the community, for the next few hours on her own time. When the storm warnings went out for the area she went back on duty at 10:00 p.m and worked non-stop, helping with accidents and assisting community members and first responders as needed until 2:00 p.m. on Thursday July 29th. Her unwavering dedication to our community in their time of need goes above and beyond what most people would do and I want to thank her for the hard work and care she gave to so many during their time of need.”
