The Washington County Board of Supervisors have selected the individual to replace County Engineer David Patterson.  Supervisor Wes Rich says he was impressed with the two that applied and adds the decision was difficult considering both candidates are equally qualified for the position.

He recommended hiring Jacob Thorius as the new engineer who has been with the Secondary Roads Department since 2005.

The Board agreed to this recommendation and Thorius will step into his new role effective January 14th of next year.
