Olenikbrandon

Kent County Department Heads have selected BRANDON L. OLENIK from the Department of Public Safety as the February 2021 Employee of the Month.

 

Brandon has been a Kent County employee in his current role as Administrative Officer for the Emergency Management Division since January 2014. Prior to that he served as a 9-1-1 Dispatcher for nine years and along the way earned his Associates degree in Homeland Security & Emergency Management and a Bachelor of Science degree in Public Safety Administration. His primary duties include assisting with planning the evacuation routes and providing shelter for persons during a natural or manmade disaster, preparing and administering grants in support of emergency services/homeland security programs, participating and assisting in emergency services drills and exercises, maintaining readiness of the Emergency Operations Center; and related activities.

 

          In addition, Brandon serves as the County’s Safety Officer responsible for safety inspections and investigating serious incidents resulting in injury or loss and making recommendations to prevent future claims. As such he has been a valuable resource for the Delaware Founders Insurance Trust’s (DFIT) Safety Committee by organizing meetings and training sessions for the large group representing many local governments.

 

          According to Public Safety Director Colin Faulkner, “With my attention focused recently on the pandemic response, Brandon has become an integral part of the vendor interface and update of the federally mandated All Hazards Mitigation Plan and Kent Emergency Operations Plan. He also plays a critical role in damage assessment for DEMA/FEMA often resulting in partial reimbursement for local disasters, such as the recent tornado spawned by Tropical Storm Isaias. He has consistently proven to be an invaluable asset to our public safety team.”

 

Congratulations Brandon on a job well done!

 

Hazelwoodmary

Kent County Department Heads have selected MARY R. HAZELWOOD from the Department of Administration as the January 2021 Employee of the Month.

 

Mary has been a Kent County employee since October 2007 and holds the position of Network Specialist II in the Information Technology Office. Her primary duties include maintaining computer systems, applications, security, and network configurations; troubleshooting computer network-related issues; configuring new desktop/laptop computers and software applications; and supporting the County’s multi-vendor enterprise LAN/WAN infrastructure. She was previously honored in 2012 and was ultimately named Employee of the Year!

 

          Mary selection this time is primarily in recognition for her outstanding efforts completing the various supervisory and work tasks assigned to the vacant Network Administrator position. Since April, she has successfully performed her own normal duties, while also completing and leading highly technical I.T. projects. During her tenure, including 5 years as a contracted ACS employee, Mary has earned a reputation for being able to communicate complex computer processes in “non-techie” terms.  She has an exceptional ability to visualize the County’s vast network of servers, computers, printers, etc. and figure out how each component is interconnected.

 

          According to Information Technology Director Kim Crouch “Mary continues to maintain the I.T. network at optimum levels and complete her regular daily tasks.  She along with her counterpart has provided the necessary leadership to initiate and complete numerous projects.  Mary’s dedication, insightfulness, and approachability make her a valuable member of the I.T. team.”

 

Congratulations Mary on a job well done!

Kent County Department Heads have selected CHRISTIAN G. WHITE of the Sheriff’s Office as the December 2020 Employee of the Month.

 

Chris serves as Chief Deputy Sheriff in the Office of the Kent Country Sheriff and has been a Kent County employee since May 2008. His primary duties include service of court-ordered subpoenas; maintaining records of service; conducting property inventory for scheduled sales; assisting in the sale of property; and as Chief Deputy supporting the Sheriff with supervising office staff and activities. Chris was previously recognized as the Employee of the Month in November 2013.  

 

Chris is a retired City of Dover police officer and is highly regarded for his professionalism and positive attitude. He uses his skills to deescalate tense situations when serving a subpoena or summons or inventorying personal property to settle a judgment.  Earlier this year when the County Complex was closed to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he cleverly suggested use of a surplus Emergency Services vehicle parked out front with partially opened windows as a secure temporary drop off point for various documents such as site plans, building or sewer permit applications, deeds, tax & sewer payments, and job applications.

 

According to Sheriff Brian E. Lewis, “Chris does an excellent job as my Chief Deputy. No matter what the task, I can count on him to be there. He and his fellow deputies are highly trained individuals capable of handling any situation. Chris is a fine example of the high quality employees working for Kent County and he is very deserving of this honor.”

 

Congratulations Chris on a job well done!

Kent County Department Heads have selected KAITLYN M. SCHECH from the Department of Community Services as the November 2020 Employee of the Month.

 

Kaitlyn serves as a Recreation Program Supervisor I in the Parks & Recreation Division and has worked for Kent County since September 2017.  Her primary duties include organizing and coordinating recreational programs and leagues at the Recreation Center, various County parks and other locations.

 

Kaitlyn is responsible for greatly expanding KCPR’s youth soccer program by leading efforts to combine youth recreational players from a local club and those enrolling in Kent County’s recreation program. Earlier this year, this combination of programs resulted in 175 sign-ups for Spring Soccer. Unfortunately, it was all cut short one week into the season by the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Working through the summer, Kaitlyn was able to coordinate a safe return for Fall Soccer, which currently has 130 youth involved. Play has continued and the vision of the Kent Youth Soccer League (KYSL) is taking shape. Kaitlyn works tirelessly coordinating with uniform suppliers, volunteer coaches, local soccer resources, officials groups, park staff, and front office staff for registration purposes.

 

According to Community Service Director Jeremy Sheppard, “Kaitlyn is a thoughtful worker with a powerful inner drive to make programs better. Her passion for youth soccer led the way for the program merger last spring and now to fruition in the fall. She successfully managed a detailed safe return plan for youth soccer and the Kent County community is better for it.”

 

Congratulations Kaitlyn on a job well done!

According to County Administrator Michael Petit de Mange, “Paul has stepped up to help reduce the recent backlog caused by an uptick in building permit applications. This effort was demonstrated last month when he began taking on extra hours and even worked over the 4th of July Holiday to complete timely inspections. Paul’s willingness to go the extra mile is greatly appreciated and very worthy of this recognition.”

 

According to Planning Services Director Sarah Keifer, “Paul not only possesses the skills required to be a great building inspector, he embraces our customer service mission. His eagerness to take on extra hours to serve the public is deeply appreciated.”

During the COVID-19 pandemic response, Amy helped make the business continuity plan in her department particularly successful.

 

According to Director of Planning Services Sarah Kiefer, “During a period of exceptionally high permit demand, changes in how permits are submitted, changes in how we communicate with applicants without use of the front counter, and continued MGO testing and development, Amy kept everything moving as efficiently and effectively as possible. She handled the situation not only without complaint, but cheerfully. I am proud of how all of Planning Services was able to continue providing service in all areas, but Amy truly stands out and has been noticed by her coworkers for that fact as well.”
