WCCAD seeks rural Eureka commissioner

Friday, May 23, 2014

EUREKA SPRINGS -- The Western Carroll County Ambulance District will discuss nominations for a board seat at its meeting May 27.

The position is currently held by Chairman Joe McClung, Jr. and expires June 30. McClung said he will not continue on the board.

Names will be welcomed for recommendation, and the commission will submit them to the county judge for his recommendation to the Quorum Court. Once a new commissioner is selected and sworn in, he or she will take a seat at the August meeting.

Also on the agenda is an update on the two new commissioners added to the board as a result of a change in the legislature last year. Those seats will be held by Judy Giggey of rural Holiday Island for four years and Marie Lee of Grassy Knob for five years initially. After the first term, the positions will revert to three years each, with two seats becoming vacant every year.

The board will also hear ambulance and medical responder reports and the financial report.

The meeting, which is open to the public, will take place on Tuesday, May 27, at 4 p.m. at the Holiday Island District Office at 110 Woodsdale Dr.
