County Coordinator Dennis Genereau said the workload for Belich was unrealistic. "It hampers my efforts too, if my second in command is tied up doing emergency management work to meet state requirements," Lake said. "And if we have something like the flood, that's two solid years of work." <

Woollett asked Mayor Hallback directly, comparing Palmer's education to the four-year degrees held by the two commanders in the department.
