BCEO RECEIVES BUSINESS OF THE YEAR SAFETY AWARD
TWO YEARS IN A ROW

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.

"The Engineer's 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."
