The Monarch Fire Protection District board of directors has made some changes in the wake of the appointment of a new director to the three-member body.
In a realignment of officers, Rick Gans was named treasurer and Jane Cunningham will retain the position of secretary. Cunningham had temporarily held both the treasurer and secretary posts after Steve Swyers submitted his resignation last month.
At a meeting early this month, Cunningham and Robin Harris, the board’s chairman, appointed Gans to complete the remainder of Swyers’ term, which ends in 2017. Gans earlier served a number of years on the board.
The three-member board also agreed to appoint Gans as Monarch’s representative on the Central County Emergency 911 board, a position he also held during his earlier Monarch board tenure. Cunningham, who had been serving on the CCE board, now will be the alternate.
