   The Grenada County Board of Supervisors on Monday discussed a new arrangement in Grenada’s Civil Defense and received a briefing about voter identification.
   Trebia Rodgers has been serving as E-911 coordinator and as director of Grenada Civil Defense.
   Her job will be separated into two, by order of the Civil Defense Commission, according to Commission Member and District Five Supervisor Chad Gray.
   The decision was made on Feb. 26, Gray said.
   Gray serves on the commission along with District Two Supervisor and Board President Chad Bridges.
   The demands of both roles required more time than Rodgers was able to give, said Gray.
   “We’re looking at hiring someone who will strictly be in charge of dispatch and Trebia will be in charge of Civil Defense,” said Gray.
   Other members on the Civil Defense Commission include Sheriff Alton Strider, Mayor Billy Collins, Ward Seven City Councilman Ronnie Merriman, Grenada Police Chief Ben Williams and two at-large members, Gray said.
   “We’re developing a very detailed job description for the position of E-911 Director right now,” said Gray. He would not comment on when the commission would like to hire someone.
