COPPERAS COVE - Coryell County will be without an emergency management coordinator following the resignation of Phillip Yarbrough.

Yarbrough submitted his resignation notice on Jan. 11, said Coryell County Judge John Firth. His effective date of resignation is Jan. 31.

Coryell County Commissioners will discuss interim measures at their meeting on Monday.

"We'll go from there in looking longer-term on a more permanent replacement," he said.

The Commissioners' Court did not take any action at its Jan. 10 meeting after its executive session, held to discuss the emergency management coordinator's position and the responsibility it entails.

Yarbrough was appointed the position Jan. 23, 2006. He also played a large role in forming the Coryell Emergency Response Team, or CERT, which provides services during flooding, fires and rescue services, as well as other emergency situations.

Yarbrough could not be reached for comment.
