Board retains personnel
By BARRY BURLESON
The Marshall County Board of Supervisors dealt with a light agenda Monday to open the new year.
First up was board appointments for 2009.
The following were unanimously reappointed to their positions – Larry Hall, county administrator and road manager; Kent Smith, board attorney and public defender; Susie Hill, comptroller; Elliott and Britt, county engineering firm; Stacey Norman, E-911 coordinator; Monet Autry, justice court clerk; Conway Moore, zoning commissioner; Etherlene Jones, veterans coordinator; Hugh Hollowell, fire coordinator and emergency management coordinator; Kay Brownlee, inventory clerk; Terry Jackson, purchase clerk; Renea Reed, receiving clerk; and Tracy Jeffries, arson investigator. The arson investigator is a joint appointment between the board of supervisors and the sheriff, which Kenny Dickerson also approved.
Bill Mobley, executive director of the Marshall County Industrial Development Authority, gave a brief update on activities.
He said he had met three times with a potential client for the Gem Building.
“That’s activity we haven’t had,” Mobley said, “and in these hard times, we’re happy with that.”
He also said IDA representatives had held a pre-bid meeting for the fuel farm at the airport. Seven companies were represented.
“It’s highly unusual to have seven; usually we would have about three,” said Mobley, adding it was likely another sign of the times. “Maybe we can get a good price on it, too.”
Consultant Gary Anderson was on hand to iron out last minute wishes of the county as the new legislative session begins this week.
“We need to get our language together on issues we want legislators to address,” he said, “and we need to get co-signers for the bills – other than Marshall County.”
