Bertram honored for Child Support collection efforts
By Doug Hogan/Anya Armes Weber
Frankfort, KY - The Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) has announced the state's 20 top-performing child support collection partners from the past year and has recognized other staff who have helped get more payments for children served by the child support program.
Taylor County County Attorney John D. Bertram was among winners announced at a ceremony in Frankfort on Thursday, October 12, 2017, hosted by the CHFS Child Support Enforcement program (CSE), part of the CHFS Department for Income Support (DIS).
The CSE administers child support enforcement for all 120 counties. CSE contracts with local officials to jointly manage the duties.
CHFS Secretary Vickie Yates Brown Glisson thanked the contractors and staff who were recognized.
"The service you provide through Child Support Enforcement touches so many lives," she said. "That work is helping to build a better future for thousands of Kentucky children. Through your work, you promote parental responsibility so that children receive support from both parents -- even when they live in separate households. It is not always easy, but you define the spirit of public service."
Acting DIS Commissioner Bryan Hubbard, who leads the CSE, said he was pleased to help honor the state's top performing contractors and administrative staff.
"The cabinet has set the bar for improved performance across the state over the past year, and those contractors and staff recognized today have made an exemplary impact," Hubbard said. "Their outstanding service to our most vulnerable citizens this past year is an example their colleagues should aspire to emulate."
Contracting officials are ranked based on their paternity establishments, the establishment of child support orders, child support collections and past-due collections.
Rankings for the 2016-17 fiscal year were made based on number of active cases.
Top performing counties with 1,000 or fewer cases are as follows:
Top performing counties with 1,000-2,000 cases are as follows:
Top performing counties with 2,000-4,000 cases are as follows:
Top performing counties with 4,000 cases or more are as follows:
Several other awards were also given to contractors and CSE staff. They are as follows:
