The Butler County Engineer's
Office has received the Greater Hamilton Safety Council's Business
Award of the Year for the second year in a row. Butler County
Engineer Greg Wilkens was presented the award yesterday in recognition
and appreciation of the BCEO's outstanding dedication and contribution
to the Greater Hamilton Safety Council during 2001.
"To my knowledge,
this is the first time the award has been given to the same organization
two years in a row," said Safety Council President Jerry
Garrett. "It says a lot about the County Engineer's commitment
to the safety of Butler County's citizens and the principles
that the Safety Council promotes."
Garrett added that
the BCEO's long term commitment to the Greater Hamilton Safety
Council has set the standard for cooperation between the Council
and local government agencies. A Safety Council member for over
30 years, the BCEO has been involved with nearly every Safety
Council division, particularly the Transportation Division, and
has had three employees serve as Council presidents.
Office has been instrumental in the development of the award-winning
high school mock crash program and the junior high So You
Want To Drive A Car program," according to Wilkens.
"We furnish facilities for the Safety Council's monthly
meetings and seminars, have provided employees who volunteer
as Driver Improvement Program instructors, and have actively
supported the very popular Safety Town program."
