After Cathy Broxon-Ball announced her intent to retire from her position as Whitley Countyâ€™s Emergency Management Agency director, the agencyâ€™s Advisory Board is discussing how the office will serve the community in the future.
â€śWeâ€™ve been talking about what we want to do with this department,â€ť said Don Amber, Whitley County Commissioner and Advisory Board member. â€śI think we agree that weâ€™d like to see things focused on Whitley County and efforts spent to prepare us here at home. Other than that we donâ€™t know what this is going to look like.â€ť
In addition to Broxon-Ballâ€™s retirement, Randy Waldeck, who has served as an assistant, is stepping down from his position.
â€śHeâ€™s sort of an assistant to Cathy,â€ť said Amber. â€śRight now Cathy is full time and Randy is part- time, however, that is how it is structured right now. We still havenâ€™t decided if thatâ€™s how we will put things together in the future.â€ť
