WORKFORCE DIRECTOR™ is a Contributing Factor in FEMA Claim Approval after the 35W Bridge Collapse




ISSUE THIRTY-SEVEN: December 17, 2007

We received official notice from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that it has approved 100% of our claim for reimbursement for 35W bridge-related expenses, including administrative costs (the maximum allowed). This includes the costs to replace PFD's and staples, reimbursement for boat repair costs and equipment hours (each and every item documented by the fabulous Logistics Team at the site) -- not to mention each and every overtime hour submitted on behalf of ALL Sheriff's Office employees from August 1, 2007 through August 25, 2007 documented on Daily Work Logs and through Workforce Director. Documenting and submitting this claim was truly a team effort. Please take a moment to congratulate:

David Rice in Finance, Lt. Randy Carroll and Sgt. Tim Bush from the jail, Capt. Bill Chandler and Capt. Brian Johnson, Sgt. Jim Lindfors, Lt. Mike Spotts and Mary Lelivelt from Homeland Security, Inspector Chet Cooper and Jim Grace, Nancy Palmer from the Office of Budget and Finance, and Judy Rue from Emergency Preparedness.

All contributed expertise and professionalism through their efforts, and you have so much to be proud of in this accomplishment.
