Jason Miller, a former Superior police officer and Clay County deputy, will join the department as a certified law enforcement officer June 1.

The board will next meet at 8:30 a.m., June 6.

The courthouse will be closed Monday, May 30, in observance of Memorial Day. The board will meet weekly in June to prepare the 2022-2023 budget.
