County recognizes Employees of the Year


Montgomery County Commissioners took time Monday to honor two employees who have distinguished themselves in 2022.

Greg Northcutt, a supervisor in the maintenance department, and maintenance department employee Greg Taylor were named Employees of the Year.

Northcutt has worked for the county for eight years. Taylor is a three-year employee. Commissioner John Frey said the two men have been instrumental in making the move to the new government center run smoothly and have excelled at the big undertaking of moving offices out of the courthouse to the center.

“These guys have done a lot of work when we moved into the government center,” Frey said. “We thank you for all you do for us.”

Northcutt said his job is enjoyable and he appreciates the recognition.

“I like this job because we get to do something different everyday,” Northcutt said. “I appreciate the fact other employees selected us for this award.”

Taylor also was thankful for the honor.

“This is neat we both won this award,” he said. “It has taken a lot of work in getting this building (government center) ready and the work continues because there is always something to do in all of the county buildings.”

Sherri Henry, E911 director, chaired the committee comprised of county employees that selected the honorees.

Commissioners signed the annual contract with the Youth Service Bureau. The contract calls for an annual payment of $63,000 to provide social services to county youth. The funds are used for matching funds needed for grants and the remainder is divided between the YSB programs.

An agreement with the Indiana Economic Development Corporation also was signed by commissioners in the amount of $450,000. The funds are for the CSX rail spur which is nearly complete at the new Tempur Sealy location. According to the agreement, the county will pay the cost of the construction and upon completion the state will reimburse the $450,000 back to the county.

Frey has been told by the contractor there are four more days of work until the rail is completed. Frey reminded commissioners that the agreement with Tempur Sealy included the spur reaching into an adjacent property for when another new manufacturer wants to build in the area.

Commissioners approved the annual contract with Edge Information Technology Solutions in the amount of $205,200 for information technology services for the county.
