25 Years of Service logo

1978 was the year City Council spent 11 hours debating a new budget in a marathon session, with Patience Latting presiding as Mayor. It was the year “Dallas,” “Diff’rent Strokes” and “Taxi” first appeared on network television.

Honor Roll certificate presented to Tommy CheatwoodIt was also the year employees like Fire Department Major John Long, IT Administrative Specialist Filiz Ponkilla and 92 others came to work for the City – to stay, through thick and thin, for 25 years.

They were all honored February 25 as their names were added to the Oklahoma Municipal League’s “Honor Roll of Service,” saluting municipal employees across the state who have served 25 years with their communities.

Mrasha Ingersoll speaks to employees“You represent 2,350 years of service,” Communications Manager Marsha Ingersoll told the employees gathered in the Council Chamber for the ceremony. “We [City employees] are part of the reason Oklahoma City is where it is today.”

OML began its ‘Honor Roll of Service’ 17 years ago. The names of all honored employees are added to the Honor Roll of Service book at OML’s headquarters.
