Milton's Human Resources departrment was awarded the Small Agency Achievement Award from the Georgia Local Government Personnel Association (GLGPA). 

"In four short years the City of Milton Human Resources Department has developed into a 'complete' department," said GLGPA officials. "With only two employees, the department provides the City of Milton with compensation and benefits, payroll, recruitment and retention, employee relations, safety and risk, and organizational development." 

Department director Sam Trager, who came to Milton in 2009 to shepherd the city from its contract with CH2M HILL OMI to a more traditional model of government, said it was a tremendous honor to be recognized.

"We were given a unique opportunity to be proactive and innovative in our approach to HR," said Trager. "We've been able to build systems that best meet the needs of our employees and to change and adjust those programs as necessary."
