The Bottom Line
100 Safe Days of Summer kickoff planned Friday (June 24)
Whether you travel this summer by plane, train, bicycle or car or whether you forsake travel and stay close to home, safe summer survival is the central message of the annual 100 Safe Days of Summer campaign. The event runs from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
An information fair and barbecue, sponsored by Headquarters employee organization DOROLCO, will kick off the safety campaign Friday on the East Annex Lawn. The Burger Blastoff for Summer is free to DOROLCO members and new enrollees; non-members will pay $4 for the meal. It will consist of hamburgers or garden burgers, salads, chips, sodas and fresh fruit.
Individuals who plan to eat should indicate their preference for hamburgers or garden burgers in advance. For more information, contact Trudi Olmstead at ext. 8277.
The ITD safety committee will provide informational displays on child safety seats, rail crossing safety and air travel tips. Pre-ordered bicycle helmets will be available for pickup.
Retirement sendoff planned July 1 for Moe Detmar
The Division of Motor Vehicles invites all ITD employees to join in a festive farewell to DMV Administrator Moe Detmar on Thursday, July 1. The retirement sendoff is planned from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Headquarters auditorium.
A driving force behind Idaho's DMV the past 27 years, Moe announced his retirement in late April. His last day in the office will be Friday, July 2. He will join wife Mary, who retired in 2003 after a long and distinguished career with ITD, most recently as manager of Budget, Policy and Intergovernmental Relations.
Moe began his career Nov. 17, 1977, and has served as manager the past nine years. Under his direction, the division has made monumental strides in improving customer service, moved to the forefront in providing Idaho citizens with online services, and removed "the stereotyped long lines and bureaucratic red tape," frequently associated with DMVs.
"I leave the division in capable hands," he said in his retirement announcement. "The managers and supervisors carrying out the daily business of motor vehicle administration are exemplary and will continue to provide exceptional service to Idaho citizens..."
Please join ITD July 1 in wishing him well.
Teams tie for annual D-3 golf tournament
Two foursomes tied for top honors last weekend at the annual District 3 golf tournament held at Purple Sage Golf Course in Caldwell.
Twelve teams representing District 3, Headquarters executive management, ITD retirees and the Federal Highway Administration participated in the event. Cash prizes were given to the winning teams. The closest-to-the-pin and longest drive winners received sleeves of golf balls.
Jayme Coonce and Jack Sparks did a masterful job of organizing the event, said District 3 Engineer Pam Lowe.
Two information sessions are planned for ITD Headquarters to help employees learn how to protect themselves and their families in the event of a disaster.
Public education specialist Mary Barlow-Brusse will teach emergency preparedness response skills in the Auditorium at Headquarters at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, June 22, and again at 2 p.m. the following day.
