I am pleased to acknowledge the selection of CLERK LORI HIRSCH as Employee of the Month for August 2019. 

In June, Sergeant Dascola and Lori began reviewing and eliminating obsolete files in the Schneider Downs software system to prepare the Real Estate and Civil Process Division for its transition to Teleosoft databases this fall. During this process, Lori discovered a considerable number of files indicating that, although the Sheriff’s Office performed service of legal paperwork, electronic payment had never been processed through the Department of Court Records. 

Throughout the past two months, Lori has worked diligently to ensure all outstanding fees owed to the Sheriff’s Office were collected, amounting in the recovery of over $82,600. By Lori’s endeavors, our agency was able to claim significant funding indebted to our office, as well as, balance all accounts in the Schneider Downs system. Without the burden of unresolved accounts, the Sheriff’s Office will be in better position to effectively and efficiently changeover to new software programming, which we anticipate to take place in the course of a few months. 

In recognition, Lori will be granted one full day off work, as long as no overtime is incurred. Please join me in congratulating Lori on a job well done!
