County to honor workers for helpful advice

Six Lane County employees will be recognized for their cost-efficient advice during the commissioners' meeting at 9:45 a.m. Wednesday in the Public Serving Building, 125 E. Eighth Ave., Eugene.

The S.A.V.E. Awards - Suggestions Are Valuable to Employees - will go to:

Damien Sands, of Health and Human Services, for suggesting a commingling process for recycling containers. Officials said this will cut down on garbage and could generate a monetary rebate from waste management companies.

Ron Gernhardt, of public works fleet services, for suggesting the use of an organic solvent as a cleaning agent to remove asphalt residue, which will save money, officials said.

Jerry Hibler, of the public works bridge crew, who constructed a scaffold system to work on the lead abatement bridge program. The old system had to be rented, officials said.

Terri White, of the sheriff's office, who submitted medical expenses to the Law Enforcement Medical Liability Account for injuries incurred by inmates while in the custody of deputies. The cost was previously paid by the county.

Robert Hickok and Patrick Utter, of the sheriff's office, for their proposals to increase jail capacity by closing the third floor and opening up the dorms and intake. Officials said the move saves staff time and frees up 23 more beds
