Email News Alerts

Hubbard County hired an Emergency Manager Wednesday with little fanfare and a relatively quick vote.

Part-time deputy, jailer and dispatcher Brian Halbasch will take the helm of the county's emergency preparedness efforts. The office will be absorbed into the Hubbard County Sheriff's Department and not be a separate entity, with Sheriff Frank Homer in charge.


Halbasch will be elevated to a full-time employee.
