Commissioners interview for a new Pittsburg County Emergency director position

McALESTER — The Pittsburg County commissioners had a visit from the 4-H Leadership Team and interviewed for a new Pittsburg County Emergency Management director on Monday.

The commissioner’s met for a regular meeting at the Pittsburg County Courthouse.

Greg Owen Extension 4-H Youth Development Educator for the Pittsburg County Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service said he and several 4-H members came to Monday’s meeting to present the commissioners with a portrait of this year’s Leadership Team.

Also during the meeting the commissioners went into executive session for “discussion and possible action to new Emergency Management director,” according to the agenda.

“We will make a decision next week,” Smith said.

Also attending Monday’s meeting were District 1 Commissioner Gene Rogers and District 3 Commissioner Kevin Smith.
