Hubbard County to hire full-time VSO

Hubbard County commissioners voted unanimously Wednesday afternoon to advertise for a full-time Veterans Service Officer.

This follows nearly a year of wrangling over staffing the formerly part-time position, which had the added duties of Emergency Management.

The Hubbard County Sheriff's Department will assume temporary oversight of the EM duties until a permanent solution can be determined.

The county VSO will be staffed five days a week for now, with help from Fargo and retired VSO John Lombard taking the helm until a replacement is hired.
