Texas Government Insider - Fort Bend Upgrades Emergency Management Position
Volume 7, Issue 3
Fort Bend County commissioners recently approved upgrading the position of Emergency Management Coordinator Jeff Braun to an executive manager and increased the salary for that position and six employees in the Office of Emergency Management.
County Judge Bob Hebert said the upgrades are necessary because the emergency management office has experienced a big increase in duties as homeland security issues were added to weather and other emergencies that impact the area. The department has experienced an almost 100 percent turnover in the last year as employees are being offered higher wages by other counties, cities and private employers.
