Cass Wessel appointed to vacant county board seat

At Monday night’s meeting of the Cass County Board, Cass Wessel was appointed to the vacant Dist. 4 board seat following the resignation of Brad Wessell.

During public comments, the board was questioned as to whether the resignation of Beardstown Fire Chief Heath White would affect the ambulance service agreement the board signed with the City of Beardstown last March. In previous meetings, it appeared as though the consensus of the board members was for Chief White to oversee the operations. Chairman, David Parish said that he had not had prior knowledge of White’s resignation or the circumstances surrounding it, but said it would not likely have any effect on the changes in proposed EMS services.

The board received a letter from Priscila Rodriguez, who expressed appreciation for receiving the Cass County Citizen Scholarship. &nbsp;&nbsp;<ahref="http://etypeservices.com/Cass%20County%20Star%20GazetteID497/"><spanstyl... 13px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">To view more, please log in or subscribe to the digital edition.</span></a></p>
