An important piece of Chickasaw County’s public ambulance service could be in place soon.
During their regular meeting Monday, the Board of Supervisors, minus Supervisor Steven Breitbach, went into closed sessions to interview the three applicants for director of the new Chickasaw County EMS department. Breitbach excused himself from the hiring process because he is related to one of the candidates, who were not identified.
After the interviews were finished and the Board returned from the final closed session, Supervisor Jacob Hackman was prepared to make an offer for the position.
While the Board waits to hear back on the EMS Director job offer, the County must also begin recruiting the other five full-time positions on the ambulance staff.
Following the approval of Hackman’s motion for the job descriptions, Supervisors approved to start advertising for the positions immediately with an application deadline of 4 p.m. Friday, October 28th, with hopes of beginning interviews in early November.
