County seeks Civil Service Commission member

The Webster County Board of Supervisors is seeking a volunteer to serve on the Civil Service Commission.

That three-member commission oversees the testing process for hiring new deputy sheriffs and promotions within the Sheriff’s Department.

The application for the post can be found on the county government’s web site at webstercountyia.gov. On the home page, click on departments and select Board of Supervisors to find an application for boards and commissions.

Applications are due by noon on Feb. 23, according to Supervisor Bob Thode.

During Tuesday’s meeting, the Board of Supervisors purchased some computer equipment for two sheriff’s patrol vehicles.

Two Panasonic Toughbook laptop computers were purchased from Keltek Inc., of Baxter, for $6,997.98

Two laptop docking stations were bought from Keltek for $1,527.38.

The board also appointed Luke Palmer to serve as the representative of the County Attorney’s Office on the Webster County Compensation Commission. That panel recommends pay increases for the county’s elected officials.
