Boone-Nance-Merrick now share emergency manager

With approval of an interlocal agreement Monday, Boone County officially joined with Nance and Merrick counties for emergency management services.

Boone County Commissioners approved the agreement on a unanimous vote.

A committee of representatives from all three counties have been formulating the interlocal agreement for several months. It is effective through the 2013-14 fiscal year. They have already hired Jan Zurcher of Columbus, a former Red Cross employee, as the three-county emergency manager.

Zurcher began her duties Jan. 3, 2012. She will be required to move from Columbus into one of the three participating counties by July 1, 2012.
