The final meeting of the year for the Four County Board of Alcohol, Drug Addiction, and Mental Health Services was also the last session for executive director Les McCaslin, who is retiring at the end of the year. McCaslin reflected on his 24 years with the board at the Thursday meeting, and over 13 as executive director. In action, the Adams Board approved a contract with A Renewed Mind for $125,000 to administer the Criminal Justice Behavioral Grant. Pillars of Success in Napoleon will receive $15,000 to help families in early recovery from substance use to secure traditional housing.
And following an executive session, the board approved a contract with Rob Giesige to become the new CEO of the Four County Adams Board. Giesige has been director of finance and administration at the agency since 2009.
