Commissioners recognize county employees

Open house date for Tustin EMS station set for January

OSCEOLA COUNTY — County employees were recognized for their years of service during the Dec. 15 Osceola County Board of Commissioners' committee of the whole meeting.

"We'd like to do a lot more for our employees if we were able," said commission chair Larry Emig to the honored group. "The pins are our appreciation for what you do. I go around the state and I hear good things about our county and its departments. Thank you for everything."

Employees who have worked from five years to 40 were thanked with a pin and handshakes from commissioners. Following the brief ceremony, those in attendance took time to enjoy refreshments and chat before the meeting continued.

In more business, the commissioners and Osceola County Emergency Medical Services Director Jeremy Beebe discussed the Tustin EMS station, which is mostly complete. Beebe said a walk-through and some final touches still need to take place.

An open house will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 28, at the station located across from the former Tustin Elementary School. Light refreshments will be provided.
