Commissioners discuss openings on commissions, public safety director

“It would be great to have a full board,” DeRuntz said.

The commissioners also discussed the county’s search for a public safety director.

Chairman Alan Bush said he was concerned with the direction the search for a public safety director was taking.

After Roger Hagan retired as public safety director in December, the commission voted to update the county’s organizational chart and move the Emergency Medical Services under the direction of the public safety director.

Bush said he thought that the board may have acted precipitously in putting the EMS under the public safety director’s jurisdiction.

“I never got a clear feeling from the board for what they wanted to do,” Bush said.

He suggested the county move the EMS back out from under the direction of the public safety director.
