Cherriots Wins the 2018 Outstanding Special District Program Award
Cherriots hired intern Logan Dickey in the summer of 2017 to assess safety hazards around the district. Dickey’s internship was funded by a grant from the Special Districts Association of Oregon (SDAO). The summer intern collected detailed data, which previously wasn’t available to Cherriots. Dickey rode every bus route in the Cherriots 76 square mile service area. He visited all 720 of the district’s active bus stops. “We can now go after the most important hazards and address them appropriately from the information he gathered,” said Michiel Majors, Safety and Loss Control Specialist for Cherriots. For their efforts, SDAO awarded Cherriots the 2018 Outstanding Special District Program Award.
