The 24 Washington County employees recognized Tuesday by the board of supervisors have a combined 636 years of service, ranging from varied clerical duties, humans and emergency services, law enforcement and all levels of road maintenance. If it were a single continuous line, it would cover more than six centuries, dating back to 1381, the high middle ages.

“It was overdue,” said County Auditor Dan Widmer, explaining Tuesday’s ceremony is an extension of last year’s recognition for long-time employees Steve Anderson and Sue Rich and will now occur annually for employees reaching 20 years or more with the county. Each received a framed certificate, presented by Board Chariman Richard Young.

The meeting followed a closed session to discuss providing general assistance funds, which was approved in open session with name and amount left confidential as provided by state code.

• approved and accepted the regular Outreach update;
