Interim Starke County EMS Director Keith Emigh will continue to drive a county-issued four-wheel-drive until a recently retired patrol car is road ready. The vehicle Emigh is currently using to travel between the EMS bases in North Judson, Knox and Grovertown will be transferred to plan commission director Terry Stephenson.
He needs a four-wheel-drive in order to fulfill his job duties. First though the county highway department needs to make repairs estimated at between $2,000 and $2,500 to one of the cars so the EMS director can use it. Money for that work will come from the commissioners budget.
