JRSA elects officers
A Walhalla representative will chair the Joint Regional Sewer Authority. And a Seneca man will be number two in the pecking order. Scott Parris, Walhalla utilities director, moved from interim chairman to chairman. Parris was elected without opposition to succeed Westminster’s Howard Adams, who recently resigned. Westminster’s Rhett Smith, who nominated Parris, said it’s only proper that Parris, who had been vice-chairman, move up. The drama in the office elections came when two commissioners contested to succeed Parris as vice chairman. In a vote of 5 to 4, Seneca’s Bob Faires edged out Westminster’s Smith.
