The DeWitt County Board held their monthly county board meeting last week. One topic on the agenda under public safety put to motion the appointing of a new Emergency Management Coordinator. Current EMA Coordinator Teresa Barnett is set to retire at the end of August.
Chairman of the Board David Newberg says Barnett will definitely be missed.
The board approved the motion to appoint Kurt Tweedy as EMA Coordinator.
Tweedy will be named EMA Coordinator upon successful completion of a background check, pre-employment physical and drug screening.
