Town seeks commission member
The town of Coulee Dam is looking for a third Civil Service Commission member.
Mayor Greg Wilder said two commissioners have been selected, but a third is still being sought.
Wilder named Shawn Derrick to the two-year term and Herb Sherburne to the six-year term. He is looking for an interested person to serve a four-year term.
Derrick is currently a town councilman, and according to Wilder, can also serve on the commission.
Anyone interested in serving on the commission can contact Wilder at city hall, 633-0320.
The commission, when functioning will be charged with two tasks. The first will be to go through the steps to hire a third Coulee Dam police officer.
In addition to a third officer, the Civil Service Commission will be involved in finding a School Resource officer, probably for the 2015-16 school year, Wilder stated.
Currently the police department is down to just two officers, Chief Pat Collins and Sgt. Larry Hall.
