Robert “Tank” Vandervort
Tank is a Senior Equipment Operator who has volunteered to step in and supervise the new trash and dead animal pick-up operations within the Department. The County has recently moved from using Detail Crews to a third-party staffing firm to supply the manpower required to maintain the unincorporated County’s right-of-way. Tank whose normal duties are on the Department’s paving crew has done a great job working alongside these new workers setting the high expectations that are required to keep the County looking beautiful.
Edward “EJ” Manning
EJ is a seasonal worker on the Department’s Mowing Crew who was hired to weed-eat the grass around obstructions that are left after the tractors mow the County’s right-of-way. EJ has joined the Road Department temporarily during the current movie industry work stoppage. We are recognizing EJ because he has been able to fill the Department’s current tractor operator shortage by showing the skill to operate a tractor daily. Congratulations to Tank and EJ!
Congratulations Tank and EJ.
Tsahalon is an entry-level Equipment Operator on the Paving Crew. He is skillful in operating the Skid Loader, performing milling operations, and running grade control on the Asphalt Paver. This past month Tsahalon learned to plan for future paving projects. Tsahalon carries a positive attitude everywhere he goes. He quickly adjusts his approach when making work decisions within his professional environment.
Cory is an entry-level Equipment Operator on the Grading Crew. His work was crucial to the construction of the Ebenezer Church Road realignment and the new Election Building’s parking lot.

Congratulations Tsahalon and Cory.
