Local 911 director undecided about Jasper County job

Saturday, May 1, 2010

Nevada, Mo. -- The Western Missouri 911 Dispatch Center board of directors met in a closed executive session on Friday, April 30, to discuss with the center's director, April Tarrant, a job of-fered to her by Jasper County Emergency Services.

Kelly Stephens, board chairman of the Jasper County Emergency Services board, said that they did offer Tarrant a position with their organization. "She wanted to take a few days to think about it," Kelly said, and he has not heard back from her.

Board chairman of the Western Missouri 911 Dispatch Center, Chris Mason, said the board did talk about the issue with Tarrant. "At the conclusion of the meeting today, there were no decisions made by either the board or Ms. Tarrant," said Mason.

Maybe the Vernon County board of directors should have looked at Ms. Tarrant's track record a little more carefully when they hired her. She seems to float around a lot.

I agree with Kiss the Cook, April Tarrant floats around a lot. I would hope that any agency that seeks interest in her, that they be ready for the new hire to quickly leave. Why waste your time? That's terrible what she's done there.

People who know nothing of April Tarrant can show their ignorance if they want, but they should really think twice before they wrongfully try to discredit someone like April Tarrant who doesn't have to hide behind a computer screen and obviously has a higher IQ than those who posted the previous two comments. You really should get a life if you have to discredit people to hide their own insecurities.
