Mission Statement

The purpose of the Town of Amherst Employee Suggestion Program is to secure for the Town of Amherst and its taxpayers the maximum benefit from the conservation of Town resources. The program recognizes the employees of the Town represent an unlimited source of ideas for better ways to serve the public. Monetary awards are intended to offer a significant incentive for employees to become involved in the creative process and to amplify the capabilities of management. The Program recognizes that every employee will, by identifying problems and providing possible solutions, become in a very real sense, a part of the creative management team.

The Merit Award Board shall have the power and duty to make rules and regulations pertaining to the payment of employee awards. All decisions of the Merit Award Board regarding the worthiness of a suggestion for an award and the amount of such award shall be final and binding and shall not be subject to review in any court or before any other body, except as provided for in the rules and regulations promulgated in accordance with this local law.
