Who are the new guys? Ryan Henson is an attorney and business owner. Stephen Donahue is a commercial airline pilot and deputy chief of Caldwell Fire and Rescue.
Why were they appointed? The two replace former commissioners Gunnar Howarth, John Miller and Jeff Sedivec, who all resigned March 8, leaving the district unable to conduct business.
Why did the former commissioners quit? Under their direction, the district overspent its budget by hundreds of thousands of dollars and failed to follow policies that regulate state governing bodies. The former commissioners said they accepted responsibility for the failures.
What's next? Henson and Donahue are responsible for choosing the board's third commissioner. It's unclear when that will happen. Then the new commission will decide how to proceed with providing services.
Who puts out fires in Star? The Eagle Fire Protection District has been providing provisional fire services in Star in recent weeks, and sticking with Eagle is one of the Star district's options.
