Sartell City Administrator/Financial Director Mary Degiovanni received a topnotch work review from the Sartell City Council at its last meeting.
Earlier, the council had met in closed session to discuss Degiovanni’s annual work performance.
The review of her work stated she is “commendable and routinely exceeds expectations.” That was the unanimous opinion of the council members and mayor.
Degiovanni has been Sartell’s financial director for years. When Sartell Administrator Patti Gartland stepped down last year to take another position, Degiovanni was appointed by the council to fill the administrator job temporarily. However, within weeks, the council began to consider letting Degiovanni do both jobs permanently – administrator and finance director. She agreed to take on that task.
