ESDA Director Steve Miller Fired

Macomb, IL – McDonough County has fired its Emergency Services and Disaster Agency Director. It's ESDA and Claims Committee told Steve Miller his last day will be Friday. Miller had no comment. Board Chairman Bob Harwick said the committee acted because of a divergence of opinions on what the office should be accomplishing and where it should be headed. Committee members had questioned Miller about his mileage ... and the number of meetings or training sessions he attended. Miller has been director for just under three years. Harwick says he plans to appoint an interim director as soon as possible, becuse the county is still in the thunderstorm season.
