Advisory Board determining EMA structure

After Cathy Broxon-Ball announced her intent to retire from her position as Whitley County’s Emergency Management Agency director, the agency’s Advisory Board is discussing how the office will serve the community in the future.“We’ve been talking about what we want to do with this department,” said Don Amber, Whitley County Commissioner and Advisory Board member. “I think we agree that we’d like to see things focused on Whitley County and efforts spent to prepare us here at home. Other than that we don’t know what this is going to look like.”In addition to Broxon-Ball’s retirement, Randy Waldeck, who has served as an assistant, is stepping down from his position.“He’s sort of an assistant to Cathy,” said Amber. “Right now Cathy is full time and Randy is part- time, however, that is how it is structured right now. We still haven’t decided if that’s how we will put things together in the future.”To read the rest of this story, see the May 8 issue of The Post and Mail. Don't have a subscription?
