Lesueur joins IDA board
By SUE WATSON
Jerome Lesueur has been appointed as member of the board of directors of the Marshall County Industrial Development Authority by supervisor Willie Flemon. His appointment is for three years.
A vacancy on the IDA board was created with the death of Bill York a few weeks ago. The 13-member board works to promote industrial development in Marshall County.
Four additional members are appointed by individual supervisors and along with Lesueur include Kathy Crawford of Slayden, Bill Dawson of Byhalia, Lennell Lucas of Holly Springs and Rodney Whaley of Potts Camp. These appointments will be up for renewal or replacement in October 2013.
Four additional members of the board are appointed by the board of supervisors as a whole and are taken from residents of the municipalities or cities. They include J.M. “Flick” Ash of Potts Camp, Bill Scott and Al Beck of Holly Springs, and Dot Childress of Byhalia. Holly Springs is given two representatives by the board because of its larger population. These four are up for renewal or replacement in October 2011.
The four other members of the board are appointed by the mayors of the cities or municipalities and include Andre’ DeBerry and Russell Johnson of Holly Springs, Phil Malone of Byhalia and Dollean Porter of Potts Camp. These appointees are up for renewal or replacement in October 2012.
In practice, the board members’ terms are automatically renewed when their terms expire, said IDA executive director Bill Mobley.
Five members of the IDA board of directors are also appointed to the airport committee to oversee the Holly Springs/Marshall County Airport, Mobley said. York was also a member of the airport committee.
IDA has three employees – Mobley, Rhonda Ash (secretary) and Justin Hall (airport manager).
