With elected Garrett County Board of Education member Rodney Durst effectively vacating his position on July 31, the Garrett County Board of County Commissioners is currently tasked with filling his spot.
Consistent with Maryland state code, the commissioners have the legal authority to appoint a replacement to serve out the remainder of Durst’s term of office on the BOE.
To that end, the board of commissioners has begun to solicit letters of interest and personal credentials from persons who may be interested in appointment to this position.
Those interested must reside in District 3, which encompasses Oakland and the surrounding southeastern portion of the county. For more detailed district information one may visit http://garrettcounty.org, and click on the “Board of Elections” link.
The commissioners ask that interested persons submit their information to Monty Pagenhardt, county administrator at the office of Board of County Commissioners, by the end of the business day on July 31.
The Board of County Commissioners plans to review the individual credentials received and make an official appointment during its public meeting on Aug. 7.
Those seeking further information may contact Monty Pagenhardt at 301-334-8970.
