Hoping to get more of his staff back to the business of fire prevention, investigation and managing emergencies, a Guadalupe County official recently received approval to hire a full-time staffer to handle the response to and reporting of the COVID-19 situation.

Guadalupe County Emergency Management Coordinator Patrick Pinder has the ability to open a new position in his department by using a small portion of the funds the federal government granted to the county through the CARES Act — costing the county nothing through the end of the year, he said.
