She comes to work every day looking to improve the way we listen and the way we respond to our residents’ needs, and it’s reflected in the entire 3-1-1 team. They’re an example of what we mean when we strive for government that works for all.”
“This recognition for Cindi is a great tribute to our entire team, the City of Austin and the wonderful customers we serve,” says Kerry Overton, Deputy General Manager, Austin Energy Chief Customer Office.
