Dangers Other Than COVID-19

The Laurens Commission of Public Works held their January meeting online Monday evening, due to the increased threat of COVID. Meanwhile, there are other threats faced daily by employees.

The commissioners were advised this week of an employee injury that recently occurred. A Natural Gas Division employee was reportedly bitten by a dog, suffering minor injuries, while inspecting a meter.

From the relative safety of indoor offices, Laurens CPW staff is also working to close the books on 2020. Administrative Services Director Blake Davis told the commissioners this week that the past year’s accounting is now being closed out as his department prepares for the annual financial audit.
