EMS complaints, COA attempted reinstatement dominate BOC meeting

A bid to reinstate ousted Commission on Aging director Scott Schryer to his position failed at Tuesday’s Osceola County Board of Commissioners meeting.

Commissioner Roger Elkins of Evart said Schryer was at the meeting to “state his case” for reinstatement.

The county previously terminated Schryer’s employment as director.

Elkins said Jack Nehmer of Marion motioned for Schryer to be reinstated and the motion was seconded. The motion was defeated.

“It was one of the longer and one of the more contentious meetings we’ve had,” Elkins said. “There were several people at the meeting on the EMS issue.”

Elkins noted there have been complaints made concerning EMS director Jeremy Beebe.

“There were a number of unhappy campers wanting to bend our ears and said we were off base,” Elkins said.
Beebe is still EMS director and there currently is not a COA director, Elkins said.

County board chairman Larry Emig said last month county coordinator Susan Vander Pol, Schryer’s supervisor, met with Schryer, and made the decision for dismissal.

“He was dismissed for a number of things over a period of time in terms of job performance,” Emig said, while declining to elaborate.

    To whom it may concern,
    In a retraction, Scott Schryer was not fired as the Director of the Commision on Aging of Osceola County. He is on Administrative leave until the Board has a closed meeting with the people involved.
