Commission Interviews Hospital Board Candidates

The Boone County Commission has finished its first round of interviews to find an appointee for the Boone Hospital Board of Trustees. One position on the board was left vacant in April when Bob McDavid was elected mayor for the City of Columbia. The commission interviewed ten candidates this week. They will narrow down the candidates and bring back the finalists for a second round of interviews with the current Hospital Board of Trustees. After the second round of interviews, the Commission will make their final selection.

County Provides Stormwater Training

Boone County Stormwater staff conducted a stormwater workshop for engineers on Wednesday. Fourteen engineers representing five local firms attended the meeting. The workshop covered the stormwater ordinance and the new design manual. Engineers that attended also received instructions on required meetings and plan submittals. Boone County Public Works Interim Director Derin Campbell stated that the goal was to produce a user-friendly manual that provided guidance but allowed for design flexibility. The County also provided the engineers with worksheets to assist in preparing stormwater plans.
