The Barry County 911 Board has selected Mike Phillips as the new administrator for the county-wide 911 system. He replaces Pat Leighter who resigned last month to accept another 911 position in Kansas.
Phillips has been with Barry County 911 since 2006 as the GIS mapping coordinator and is familiar with the operations of the 911 center, which is located in Cassville.
"Mike has the right background and experience to lead Barry County 911," said Jon Horner, board president. "He understands the importance of a responsive 911 center and the impact the 911 system has on the lives of Barry Countians each and every day."
