Appointments for the Emergency Services Adhoc Committee
As of March 13, 2018, I am excited to announce that we have seven (7) volunteers that will be a part of the Emergency Services Adhoc Committee (ESAC). Joining me and Council Member Place 3, Scott Turnbull are the following citizens:
Gary Nickel. Not only is he serving on the Board of Adjustments he serves his neighborhood as HOA president of Kentwood. Mr. Nickel is a citizen of 8 years, retired engineer and has been proactive in challenging this council with any Fire Department related subject matters. He has been a help by offering reports of experiences related to road repairs which was a value and insightful information for those who reside on Frontier Trail.
Sherri Klutts. A citizen of 49 years and the daughter of the late, Council Member Place 5 Jerry Klutts. She is a real estate agent and familiar with the rich history of McLendon-Chisholm. A strong woman with conviction to stand for what is right and an advocate to find the best answers.
Brian Wiggins. A citizen of 3 years, but has lived in Rockwall County for most of his life. He currently serves as Vice President on the Windsor HOA. With a Bachelor of Science of Construction Engineering from Texas Tech University he is in construction safety management where he often reviews construction related rescue plans. He is immersed in logistical thinking about in case of emergency protocols and works with a number of fire departments on multimillion dollar projects. CPR Trained and desires to serve his community.
Albert Verbeke. A citizen of 2 years, who is enjoying retirement by serving as Treasurer on the Kingsbridge HOA. Mr. Verbeke holds no punches and has a knock out way of looking at numbers.
Sasha Rudie. A citizen of 2.5 months, artist who cares deeply about community safety. Ms. Rudie is highly skilled at researching the best options for almost any situation. Avid reader and enjoys learning about a variety of subjects. With over 30+ years of computer and desktop publishing experience she will be valuable when it comes to overall presentation skill contributions for the townhall meeting.
The volunteers recommended have some incredible value, experience, wisdom and essentially some particular skills that I believe is going to lead us to a successful plan to present to the City Council and to the citizens of McLendon-Chisholm. This committee will be working with a $5,000 budget that is there if needed to compensate for third party consultants, supplies and/or other items needed to present a presentation at a townhall meeting that will take place for citizens to review a recommended plan and/or options.
