Additional Insured Endorsement
It is important to know that this requirement is a change to a current policy, if you already have one.  It is not acceptable to just add language to the bottom of a Certificate Of Insurance, for example.  The policy holder (you) must execute a totally separate endorsement to any policy by a specific endorsement on any insurance policies required that says:

"Lane County and its subdivisions, its commissioners, officers, agents and employees as additional insureds" . 

Again, the additional insureds must be named as an additional insured by separate endorsement, and the policy must be endorsed to show cancellation notices to Lane County Public Works.

Typically, proof of insurance is provided by producing a Certificate of Insurance  that has a separate Additional Insured Endorsement page.  Both documents are then reviewed and approved to meet these insurance requirements.
