Commissioners get updates, make many appointments

Updates and appointments were the main topics of the Randolph County Board of Commissioners meeting on Oct. 18.

Randolph County State’s Attorney Jeremy Walker presented the commissioners with the annual resolution for the appellate prosecutor. He noted the only thing different this year was that the price went up. 

Walker stated that for a long time the cost had been $12,000, but this year counties the size of Randolph were being asked to pay $15,000 for the appellate prosecutor services. This amount would be paid with the new fiscal year in December.

For appointments, the commissioners appointed 32 to the Randolph County Local Emergency Planning Commission, three to the Randolph County Tourism Committee, one to the Kaskaskia Island Levee and Drainage District, two to the Randolph County Zoning Board of Appeals, three to the Chester Memorial Hospital Board and one to the Prairie du Rocher/Modoc Levee and Drainage District.
