Covington County’s E-911 director has resigned her position effective Dec. 26.

Kristi Stamnes turned in her letter of resignation on Dec. 12.



Wayne Godwin, chairman of the E-911 board, said that Stamnes has taken a job in Texas.

Stamnes has worked for E-911 since August 1999, when she joined as assistant director.

In 2004, she became director of both EMA and E-911.

Then, in 2009, the county commission decided to split the jobs and she has spent the rest of the time as director of E-911.

The board appointed Stacey Jackson as interim director.

The job will be posted today for 30 days, the board agreed.

And they anticipate it taking 60 days to hire a new director.

Among the qualifications are a high school diploma or GED, preferred associates degree or higher, be willing to get certain certifications within 60 days, live in county or move in the county, possess a valid driver’s license and more.

The complete job description is expected to be posted in the Andalusia Star-News, Alabama joblink and a few E-911 communicator job sites.
