The city of Zachary has been rewarded for implementing policies and procedures that protect the safety and welfare of all its employees.

Louisiana Workers Compensation Corporation, a worker’s compensation carrier, presented a $103,637 dividend check to Zachary Mayor David Amrhein April 14.

Paul Owen, agency manager with John Hendry Insurance Agency, commended the Zachary employees on promoting workplace safety and loss prevention, which ultimately led to the monetary reward the city received as a policyholder.

Amrhein thanked Zachary Safety Officer Bob Whitaker for implementing the safe work practices.
