Herringshaw was named as an alternate on the TMACOG Board of Trustees along with W. David Steiner, planning commission director. Herringshaw will also serve on the Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee for the County Commissioners' Association of Ohio and the Erie Basin Resource Conservation and Development Council.
Commissioner Joel M. Kuhlman of Bowling Green was selected to serve on the county's Board of Revisions, Courthouse Buildings and Grounds Committee, Court Security Advisory Committee, Dangerous Wild Animal Response Team and Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC). He will also serve on the TMACOG Freight Committee and Transportation Council as well as alternate on the TMACOG Board of Trustees.
