The Cass County Board of Supervisors today (Friday) voted to appoint Cathy Downey, of Atlantic, to fill a vacancy on the County Veterans Affairs Commission. Downey will hold the position to fill the vacancy, for the remainder of a vacancy term created by the resignation on March 21st of VA Commissioner Jerald Putnam, of Griswold. Putnam had served on the Commission for more than 12-years. Downey will serve on the Commission at least until the term ends on June 20th, 2013.

The Board also voted to remove from the Local Emergency Planning Council James C. Wyman, of Griswold, and Chuck Kinen, who passed away last year. They voted to appoint to the LEPC, Kurt Reason (Marne Fire Dept.), along with Supervisors Gaylord Schelling and Mark Wedemeyer.

In other business, the Cass County Supervisors tabled action on a revision to the County’s cellular phone policy, pending further discussion with the various County Department heads, who have not yet had a chance to review the current proposed policy.
