KC Council, Vincennes Board of Works Approve EMA Director Grant Agreement

The Knox County Council and Vincennes Board of Works has joined the Knox County Commissioners in an emergency management agreement.  City and County officials are joining in a reimbursement program to fund a move of Knox County E-M-A director John Streeter to full-time status.  The position is funded in part by a grant provided by the State of Indiana.

           Streeter describes how the state grant works…

            Streeter also hopes the statewide funding for the position will be increased…

             Streeter has been the E-M-A director since the mid-2000’s, following the death of former director Steve Dillon.  Previous to this agreement, the position had been considered part-time—one of only two County E-M-A positions statewide to have had that status.
