Sergeant Doug Hren will be recognized as will former reserve officer and current volunteer Roger Johnson, father to Grass Valley Police officer of the year Sgt Steve Johnson.
“My dad moved to Grass Valley and the Nevada County area over 40 years ago. After moving here, he pretty quickly became a reserve police officer for the city of Grass Valley and just loved it. He loved the police department and worked there for approximately 8 years. Then in his retired life, it was an easy transition for him to become a citizen volunteer. He’s been doing that for over 14 years and just loves it. I’m very proud of my father and the legacy he’s left of just selfless service to his community.”
The council will be asked to adopt a resolution authorizing the application for the Tiger Grant for the Dorsey Driver Interchange. The Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery, or TIGER Discretionary Grant program, provides an opportunity for the U.S. Department of Transportation to invest in road, rail, transit and port projects that promise to achieve critical national objectives.
