Kaye Stacy Retires

After 29 years of service, Kaye Stacy has retired. Kaye began her career with MoDOT in July of 1983, as a Traffic Accident Clerk in the Maintenance and Traffic section in Central Office. In May of 1997, Kaye joined Right of Way Division as an Outdoor Advertising Technician and was promoted to an Outdoor Advertising Permit Specialist in August of 2000. Rich Martin, Lamar Advertising, stated, "Kaye has been a blessing to work with. She always had an answer or suggestion for any question we have ever had and did not hesitate to correct us when something had gone wrong, but she was always fair and consistent."

Outdoor Advertising recently purchased equipment to obtain GPS coordinates of permitted signs and verify the height and width of sign faces. This information will be automatically transferred into our inventory database allowing the ability to precisely locate permitted billboards. Outdoor Advertising staff will focus on obtaining this information throughout 2012.
