Brown Co emergency management director resigns
02/12/2019

Brown County Courthouse

(KNZA)--Brown County will be seeking a new emergency management director.

Following an executive session Monday, Brown County Commission Chairman Keith Olsen announced that Undersheriff Randy Linck has resigned from the director’s position.

Olsen said Linck has agreed to continue serving in the position until a replacement is hired.

In other business, Sheriff John Merchant presented a quote for an engineering study of the HVAC system at the Sheriff’s Office from Orazem and Scalora Engineering, of Manhattan.

Merchant says there has been issues with the HVAC system since it was installed when the jail was built and would like to have the firm evaluate the system and make a recommendation.

The Commission voted to proceed with study at a cost not to exceed $10,700, with funding to come from proceeds left from the sales tax approved by voters for construction of the jail.   

The Commission also approved a request by Merchant for the purchase of  eleven new fire extinguishers from AKE Safety Equipment for the Sheriff’s Department’s patrol cars, with half of the $7,200 cost coming from the Commissioner’s fund.
