March 30, 2006

The Washington County Commissioners on Tuesday named Edwin L. Plank as Highway Department director, according to a written statement.

Plank, who has worked for the department for 12 years, replaces Ted Wolford.

Wolford, who retired in February, was the director for 30 years.

County Commissioner John C. Munson said Wednesday that Plank's salary will be $66,500 a year.

Plank served as interim director while the commissioners looked for a new director, according to the statement.

"We are confident that Ed will provide strong leadership for the organization," Public Works Director Gary Rohrer said in the statement. "He is taking over a department that has a lot of good personnel with a strong work ethic and pride in what they do."

Rohrer said in the statement Plank has 25 years of experience managing personnel in large construction operations. For the county, he has worked in motor equipment operator positions and as assistant supervisor for the Highway Department's southern section before becoming the western section supervisor.
