After 10 years with the Union Parish E-911 Communications District, Director Danny Smith is retiring.

Smith, who spent 35 years with the IMC plant in Sterlington, has seen several changes, for the better.

“I know that Union 911 is in a much better position now. We’ve had upgrades to equipment and the overall system through grants and other funding,” Smith said.

His official last day is June 30, but with accrued leave his time in the office will end some time in May, more than likely.

“I’m looking forward to what’s in my future,” Smith said. “I’m excited for that.”

The 911 Communications District Board will advertise for a new Director to be appointed.
