City of Tigard Central Services Director Nadine Robinson was honored last month for her 34 years of service to the City, as the City Council unanimously passed a resolution praising her role.
Robinson has spent almost the last seven years in her current role overseeing several key departments, including the municipal court. Her career was highlighted at the Oct. 26 council meeting, where numerous colleagues and council members spoke about her time with the city and shared their recollections.
“Unflappable, professional, personable, competent, capable,” said Assistant City Manager Kathy Nyland. “Those are just a few of the words that come to mind when I think of you, Nadine Robinson.”
“In the 34 years she’s had internally and staff-wise, she has had some pretty incredible Halloween outfits that I think we will all miss,” said Communications manager Kent Wyatt. “She was always top at that and community wise her impact can be felt, as you’ve heard as a council, with the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) plan and the accessibility in our community.”
“She cared about everyone and wanted the city to be absolutely top notch in providing service,” said City Recorder Carol Krager She’s a dear, dear person, just a wonderful human being and she will be missed very much.”
