As the Drainage Officer, the department head takes applications for drainage permits and makes recommendations to the Commission for granting or denying the permits. The Emergency Management office maintains the County plan for reacting to emergencies. This office works with other government groups to develop this plan and assists in training others to respond to the emergency. During an actual emergency, the director coordinates the action.
