 Working Wednesday

Our January Working Wednesday is Duane.

Duane has been employed with Belco Works since 2017 at the ODOT rest area on Interstate 70. When asked what he likes best about the job, Duane state, "Well, I always like mowing, but I like doing a good job and hearing the good compliments." While visiting Duane on his job-site, he was busy mopping, but you can find him doing many tasks, such as cleaning, grounds keeping, picking up trash in the car lot and when weather permitting, mowing. "Duane is a hard worker he just needs some motivation at times," states his supervisor, Dave. "Dave is a good guy. I go to him for a lot of advice," Duane added.

Congratulations Duane!!

Upcoming Events/Programs

Communication Disability Law

An individual with a medically diagnosed communication disability who drives or regularly has someone with a communication disability in their vehicle, can voluntarily enroll in a database that connects to the Law Enforcement Agencies Data System (LEADS). An officer can then be made aware that the driver or a person in the vehicle may have difficulty communicating with the officer to reduce any potential misunderstandings or communication problems.  

Individuals who are interested in self-identifying can complete a Verification Form and take the completed Verification Form to their licensed medical practitioner who can validate the individual has a communication disability. Forms can be found online or in the front office of the Guernsey County Board of Developmental Disabilities.

Completed  Verification Forms can be mailed to:

Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles/Vehicle Information Services
P.O. Box 16521
Columbus, Ohio 43216-6521

Completed applications can also be e-mailed to VIS-Administration@dps.ohio.gov or hand delivered to any Deputy Registrar (BMV).

For more information, visit Frequently Asked Questions or call 614-438-1203 or 1-800-282-4536, extension 1203.
