 Working Wednesday

Our September Working Wednesday individual is Brian.

Brian has been employed at The Airport Tavern in Lore City since 2015. When asked what his favorite part of the job is Brian replied, "That is a hard question. It is always something different here and I like that." Brian is always willing to help out even if he is off shift waiting on his ride. MaryAnn, Brian's Supervisor, boasts, "Brian always does what is asked of him and goes above and beyond to be helpful. He knows his job and he does it well." On Tuesday evenings Brian gets to work an extra shift and he might enjoy this the most. MaryAnn adds that Brian is a joy to work with and he never complains about the tasks that are given to him.

Congratulations Brian!

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.
