Interviews are anticipated this week as the Pennington County Board of Commissioners begin to talk with applicants for the position of Emergency Management Director.
As many as 9 applicants have applied and applications have been reviewed, with interviews as early as Friday.
Pennington County posted the 3 quarter time position earlier this year after the State Department of Homeland Security said it was no longer allowable for Sheriff Ray Kuznia to address both jobs.
Security Specialists say the Sheriff already has a full time job and the county needs to address the responsibilities of Emergency Management separately.
Commissioners Don Jensen and Darryl Tveitbakk are heading up the interview effort and hope to make a recommendation to the full County Board next Tuesday.by ndmuscle
