Nicholasville businessman Clay Corman has been named to the Jessamine County Fire District board by Judge-Executive Wm. Neal Cassity.
Corman will finish out the remainder of the term of long-time board member Ray Miller, who passed away Feb. 22.
Corman is owner of CMC Inc., which does environmental reclamation work for the Environmental Protection Agency.
Cassity said he felt like Corman was the best fit for the job.
"He has done work for the district before, and he has helped the county out on many occasions, and I think he will be an asset to them," Cassity said. "I put a lot of thought into it, and I thought he would be a good fit."
Fire Chief Mike Rupard agreed.
"He couldn't have picked any better man for the job," he said. "He cares about everybody in the county, and he will do a fair and equal job for everybody."
