County to advertise positions

The Washington County Commissioners on Tuesday agreed to advertise the following positions:

· Two grade-8 senior office associates, one in Human Resources and one at the Agricultural Center

· A grade-15 civil engineer

· A grade-9 senior plant operator in the Department of Water Quality

· A grade-11 land preservation planner

Agricultural Education Center board members approved

The following appointments to the Agricultural Education Center Board of Directors were approved 4-1 on Tuesday:

· Gerald Poffenberger, William Poffenberger and Peter Callas will be appointed to one-year terms.

· William Blair, Hal Spielman and Ronald Web will be appointed for two-year terms.

· Galen Long and Ronald Frey will be appointed for three-year terms.

The board recently was pared from 15 members to nine members.


Commissioner Kristin B. Aleshire voted against the appointments, saying that current county policy would not allow the reappointment of all of the members.

"I was not against reappointing the members; just against having county policy that we repeatedly ignore," Aleshire wrote in an e-mail Wednesday.
