The Pulaski County Commissioners reorganized to start 2015 where Larry Brady was retained as commission president while Terry Young was appointed as vice president. Bud Krohn, Jr. attended his first meeting as a commissioner Monday night.
The commissioners made several appointments to boards. Mark Fox was retained as supervisor of county highways, Dave Dare was retained as building inspector, Ed Fleury was retained as veteran service officer, Jeff Johnston as maintenance director and Sarah Kasten was retained as animal control officer.
Krohn asked that a working supervisor position be created at the Pulaski County Highway Garage and requested a pay raise for that position of $750. Pulaski County Council member Mick Tiede was in attendance and asked if this was a new position and Krohn confirmed it was but no additional employee would be hired. The commissioners unanimously approved the request and it will now go before the county council on Jan 12.
The commissioners also unanimously approved the hire of Brad Bonnell as the director of the Pulaski County Recycling and Transfer Center. Bonnell replaces Ed Clark who had been the director at the facility for the past 12 years. Clark retired at the end of 2014.
