UPDATE – 10/30/18 – 5:09 A.M. (Updates succession process)

Hancock County’s engineer is stepping down next month. Chris Long says he’ll go on disability on November 17 so he can deal with the effects of multiple sclerosis.

Long has been the engineer since Steve Wilson retired in 2012.

The Hancock County Commissioners will appoint an interim engineer following the resignation. After that, the Hancock County Republican Party Central Committee will meet in special session to appoint a successor to fill the rest of Long’s term.
