At the event, Gov. John Kasich and BWC Administrator/CEO Steve Buehrer presented Norton with the city’s rebate check of $110,000, along with checks to Toledo and 10 private businesses in Ohio.
The BWC is refunding more than 210,000 companies and governmental agencies with a total of more than $1 billion as part of the rebate program.
During his speech, Norton shared what the city is doing to ensure the safety of its workers, including having a safety committee, monthly safety meetings and purchasing equipment such as two crash attenuators, one of which is shown above, with a 2012 BWC grant of $20,040 to assist in providing a safer work environment.
The city also purchased two used vehicles to serve as shadow vehicles for approximately $55,000, according to Valerie Wolford, communications director for the city.
