New Animal Control Director For Christian County Picked

The Christian County Board met on Tuesday evening. The board heard from the public. Many spoke out in support of ousted Vince Harris, who had been terminated from the Zoning Board of Appeals and the Solid Waste Officer position last month.  Many also spoke out about the Animal Control and a zoning ordinance that would rezone some residential lots to commercial in Pana.

 

Board President Matt Wells gave an update on the State Police Investigation that was taking place on some accounts that Vince Harris was responsible for.  Wells says the State Police were not going to conduct an investigation.

 

 

Wells continued saying that he wanted to make sure everyone was aware of what was going on.

 

 

The motion was tabled to the end of the meeting where they voted to table it again and send it to the personnel committee.

 

The board also approved Dr. Leslie Devore to the health board and announced Sherri Anderson Craggs as the new Animal Control Director effective August 1st. 

 

 

A zoning ordinance that had been previously approved, was found out to be wrong and had to be changed.

 

 

The original Zoning ordinance was rescinded and it was sent back to committee. The motion for the rezoning of residential lots in Pana to commercial was also tabled and sent back to committee.  Stay tuned to Regional Radio News for more on the County Board meeting in the next couple of days.
