Dale Arends was voted in as the 2008 chairman of the Buena Vista Board of Supervisors Wednesday morning at the first meeting of the new year. Lorna Burnside was chosen as vice chairman. Board member Ken Hach praised her service to the county over many years.
Herb Crampton, who passed on the chairman seat, had a busy year with the construction of the new law enforcement center as a highlight.
He commented, "It's a good jail. We really needed it. We had good results from everyone and I appreciate it. I especially thank Karen (Auditor Karen Strawn) for all her help."
