Public Works taps Silver Creek man

Summit County tapped Silver Creek resident Rick Dunford as its new deputy Public Works administrator.

"He is just somebody who everybody loves and respects and we’re lucky to have him," Summit County Commissioner Sally Elliott said.

Dunford will oversee environmental initiatives, fleet management and an employee-safety program, Summit County Public Works Administrator Kevin Callahan said.

"We want to reduce our fuel use We want to reduce our carbon footprint," Callahan said. "I’ve asked him to start putting together some ideas for how we can reduce our costs with fuel costs going up and the push for organizations to be greener."

Meanwhile, fortunately no Public Works employees have suffered significant injuries on the job. Callahan said.

"But we’ve not been as organized and systematic about that as we should be," he said.

Dunford will also coordinate the county’s roads and solid-waste divisions.

"He is extremely familiar with development issues here and with the infrastructure," Callahan said, adding that Dunford was employed by the Jack Johnson Company.
