A courthouse “get it done” employee is praised by county counsel, commissioners and the county’s insurers
Janet Harrison is one of an elite troupe of Lincoln County Courthouse employees who is a truly “go to” person when something needs to be done quickly and done right. Harrison was given a Certificate of Appreciation by the Lincoln County Commission, County Counsel Wayne Belmont and the county’s insurance agency this week. Belmont thanked Janet for her excellent work ethic and years of service to Lincoln County and all those who live here.
Belmont said Harrison has helped the commissioners’ office and his own to maintain high service levels despite shrinking or stagnant revenues to pay for them. Belmont says Harrison has taken over the reins of the county’s Safety Committee, safety training, safety manuals and best practices. She’s also the county’s Risk Management Coordinator who helps to enhance employee safety throughout the county’s far flung facilities and projects. Her good work also caught the attention of the Oregon City/County Insurance Services agency which provides insurance coverage for the county.
In addition to all that, Harrison’s main job is that of a paralegal for veteran County Counsel Wayne Belmont, who, himself wears at least two hats in that he works very closely with the county commissioners as county counsel while also performing many duties that are typically assigned to a county manager, a position which Lincoln County does not have.
