XENIA — City of Xenia finance employee Dennis Evans recently retired after 23 years of service.
Evans is a graduate of Cedarville High School and pursued his higher education at Wright State University, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in business management. He has spent most of his career serving the City of Xenia citizens as a finance clerk responsible for assisting customers with utility services and filing income tax returns.
His knowledge and experience in utility billing and income tax played a vital role in the day-to-day operations of the department, according to a release from the city. In 15 years in the tax department he became the city’s resident expert in business tax returns, and in his willingness to assist, he routinely volunteered for those tasks that many would view as less desirable.
“Dennis contributed a great deal to our organization and community,” said Finance Director Ryan Duke. “His tremendous work ethic, diligence, thoughtfulness, and commitment to serve will be sorely missed.”
