“Serendipitous” is an adjective that John Heckler, recently appointed Madison County commissioner, uses. That a retired civil engineer who specialized in water issues was appointed to a vacant seat at a time when water is a top issue could also be described as serendipitous. Or good luck. Or good planning.
Following advice given by a District 3 hiring panel, Madison County Commissioners Dan Allhands and Ron Nye have chosen John Heckler to take over where recently retired Commissioner Jim Hart left off.
