Congratulations, Casey Hill! 

 

Casey Hill is always ready to help. She serves as a Code Compliance Officer and assists wherever needed with an outstanding attitude of community service. Braving the Texas heat and deplorable conditions, Casey readily donned a Hazmat Suit with an industrial face mask and assisted Animal Services field staff with the rescue of 15 cats from an animal hoarding location. Amid the heat and unthinkable conditions, Casey never once complained.
 
Casey also regularly assists the Arlington Police Department Vice-Unit with special operations related to illegal gamerooms. Thanks to Casey's good work, many electrical hazards and other life-safety violations are being corrected to support public safety.
 
Code Compliance Officer Casey Hill gives more than 100% in all aspects of her job and service to the community.  

  

Thank you Casey, for the great work you do serving our community!
