Montrose, COLO.—The Montrose County Clerk and Recorder's Vital Statistics Team is setting the new standard for excellence as the only county to receive the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment's (CDPHE) annual Five Star Award for six years in a row. Led by supervisor Crystal Hudnall, this team has once again scored perfect on seven different evaluating categories: application audits, policy receipts and annual renewals (100 percent receipts and items completed by deadline), surveys (100 percent meeting survey deadlines), responsiveness (zero reports in billing, registration and quality assurance), timeliness (100 percent timeliness on registrations from the local office to the state office), completeness (zero items returned for additional information), and up-to-date staff training from COTrain.
"I am so proud of the hard work that goes into this award," said Guynes. "Receiving this honor for the sixth year in a row is an unprecedented feat and I'd like to honor and thank my staff for their diligence--most notably, I would like to recognize the supervisor Crystal for her leadership and commitment to excellence."
"This is an honor for not only the Clerk and Recorder's Office, but the entire county," said Board Chair Sue Hansen. "Leadership is a valuable asset in any professional workplace and I'm glad to see the strength of leadership, dedication to excellence, and consistent performance by the vital statistics team. I would like to congratulate both the team and Clerk and Recorder Tressa Guynes for making Montrose County a standard for excellence statewide."
In addition to Hudnall, the vital statistics team includes Dharma Conant, Rhonda Motsko and Valerie McGlothlin. The team is already working hard on achieving this distinction for a seventh year. The CDPHE award will be displayed in the Recording Office at 320 South 1st Street.
