New Emergency Director

Atchison County Kansas now has a new emergency preparedness director.

Interim director Wes Lanter will take the job permanently, as well as be the noxious weed director. Already the county's IT director, Lanter is finishing up coursework for certification in the position. He was one of 10 applicants for the emergency preparedness position and has been serving in the interim position since the departure of Lori Chew earlier this year. He had been an administrative assistant in that office prior to this role.
