County plans fair board interviews

— The Okanogan County Parks and Recreation Board, better known as the fair board, will interview the final of four candidates during a special meeting tonight, Oct. 23.

Monica Rawson will be interviewed at the 7 p.m. meeting at the board’s office, 175 Rodeo Trail Road. The other candidates, Dave Yarnell, Shonta Wood and Justin Wilson, were interviewed Oct. 9.

Board President Gwen Whitley said the board will vote on which two candidates to recommend to the county commissioners, who have already conducted their own interviews. Board member Bill White said he’d be in favor of creating a 15-member board.

“Right now there are only 5 of us and we are worked to death, especially with no manager,” he said. “We need to spread the work out and getting at least two more people will be a great help.”
