Written by jordanmckamey on April 5, 2019
The Northern Wyoming News reports that the Washakie County commissioners interviewed four candidates for the Washakie County Emergency Management/Homeland Security director and have extended an offer to one candidate.
Per the article, Commission Chairman Fred Frandson stated the county received nine applications and they conducted interviews with four candidates on Monday. He said on Tuesday during the regular monthly commissioner meeting that they are waiting to hear if their offer has been accepted.
If the offer is accepted and the county “hires” the new director, the name will be sent to the Wyoming Office of Homeland Security and a background check will be conducted. If approved by HLS, the person’s name will be sent to Governor Mark Gordon for final approval.
Until the offer is accepted and the county hire is official, Frandson declined to announce the name.
