Presentation of Ron & Jane Cease Public Service Leadership Award to

Linda Adlard

Robert Gasner, President, Local Chapter of American Society for Public

Administration, said this week was Public Service Recognition Week

where public servants were recognized for their contributions to the

citizens and community.  He explained that as part of the local celebration,

the Ron & Jane Cease Public Leadership Award was being presented to

Beaverton’s Chief of Staff Linda Adlard.  He introduced Ron & Jane


Ron Cease explained they established this award because there was

substantial public anti-government sentiment and they wanted to provide a

means for positive recognition for full time professionals in government or

non-profit organizations for their work.  He noted this was the first time the

award had been presented, but they hoped to make it an annual award.  

Jane Cease said that she had experienced a substantial amount of anti-

government feelings while she was in public service.  She noted this was

not pleasant for people who were employed or elected into public service

and it was good to be able to recognize people who worked through these

difficult times.  

Cease added that through the award they wanted to contribute some of

the money that they had earned through public service to these

professionals to recognize their contributions.  

Mayor Drake commented on Linda Adlard’s distinguished career, noting

that the City of Beaverton had benefited from her experience.    

Coun. Soth thanked the Ceases for their service in the legislature.  He

gave tribute to Adlard for her work on the new Library and on “The Round”,

two important landmark projects for the City.  

Gasner said they were pleased to present the first Ron & Jane Cease

Public Service Leadership Award to Linda Adlard for her past and future

contributions to public service in Beaverton and Oregon.   

Adlard stated she was honored to receive the award.  She complimented

the citizens of Beaverton and said she was lucky to work with good

people.  She said she felt Mayor Drake and the City Council were the best

in the state and thanked everyone for their support.


Mayor Drake called for a recess at 6:55 p.m.


Mayor Drake reconvened the meeting at 7:05 p.m.


Betty Bolz, Beaverton, reported three of her concerns to the Council.  She

asked if the City could contact the property owners on both sides of Hart

Road, between 12470 Hart Road and the Hearthstone Assisted Living

Community, because the shrubs and trees along the fence were

overgrown and blocked the view to people driving on Hart Road.  She

noted that there was only one sidewalk on the Albertson’s parking lot exit

at Greenway and it was an unsafe situation.  She felt there should be a

walkway on both sides.  She said she spoke to the manager of

Albertson’s, who advised her that the store would not be able to make

changes and that she should contact the Council.   She concluded with

the request that the timing of the crosswalk lights be extended on certain


Mayor Drake said he would ask Code Enforcement to look at the area on

Hart Road for any code violations.  He said the second sidewalk was not

part of the original design at Albertson’s and was not required at the time

the store was built.  He noted it would be up to Albertson’s to construct the

sidewalk and the City would not be able to require it unless there was a

major remodel of the store.   

Mayor Drake suggested that Bolz make a list of intersections that she felt

needed attention and send it to him.  He added he would send the list to

Operations and Engineering to check to see if there were some that

needed to be modified.

Bolz stated she would gather the information.


Coun. Soth announced that there would be a Picnic in the Park at Camille

Park with the Mayor and City Council on May 15, 2002.

Coun. Stanton gave her apologies for not being able to attend the

Volunteer Recognition Event; she was out of town.
