Presentation of Ron & Jane Cease Public Service Leadership Award to
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
Beavertons 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
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 Adlards 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 Albertsons 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
Albertsons, 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 Albertsons and was not required at the time
the store was built. He noted it would be up to Albertsons 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.

Volunteer Recognition Event; she was out of town.
