The Washington County Commissioners agreed Tuesday to give the Washington County Fire and Rescue Association $30,000 to hire a new administrative assistant to replace former county Fire and Rescue Coordinator Roger "Jerry" Reed.
The new employee won't be a county employee like Reed, who resigned effective May 15. County Personnel Director Alan Davis said it wouldn't work well to have an employee who had to answer to two bosses - the County Commissioners and the association.
"It didn't work in the past and we want to make sure that we get started on the right foot," said County Commissioners President Gregory I. Snook.
