New EMA Director Picked For La Salle County

Posted by wlpo on October 13, 2011

When a disaster hits La Salle County, Connie Brooks will be at the forefront of response.

She was unanimously approved Thursday as the next La Salle County Emergency Management Agency Director.  Brooks will take over officially December 1st when Mike Jobst retires after eight years on the job.  Brooks has been his assistant since 2009 when she left a job with the La Salle County Health Department.

She’ll make just over 47 thousand dollars a year.  Her contract is for one year.

Because of a negotiated two and quarter percent pay raise for county employees, Brooks will make more than what Jobst is earning now.
